The Human Right to Living Wages

Presented by

Johanna K. Schmidt (Triodos IM) & Tenisha Elliott (BMO GAM)

About this talk

The Platform Living Wage Financials is a coalition of investors working to engage our investee companies, in the Garment & Footwear, but also the Food Retail and Agricultural sectors, on their implementation of living wages. We assess companies on our methodology covering 8 key pillars: policy, engagement with multi-stakeholder initiatives, engagement with trade unions, assessing impacts, integrating findings, tracking performance, remedy and transparency. We encourage brands to work toward best practice in these areas and view them as key to an effective supply chain due diligence framework to support the realisation of living wages for workers. In this webinar we will explore: • How to conduct meaningful engagement, the role of investors in promoting living wages • Due diligence best practice: audits vs wage data collection vs working with MSIs • Brand purchasing practices- is it time for ‘skin in the game’
