The hidden cost of the electric car boom – child labour
Updated: Dec 13, 2018
With the "sales explosion" of electric cars, this certainly poses a tremendous challenge to Responsible Companies dealing with the whole supply chain. And triggers, yet again, a very interesting new dimension of Corporate role in this "new world": in places where Governments do not do their "job" (regulate, control and sanction) who can their citizens rely on? The answer is obvious: on big Corporations operating worldwide, who cannot ignore these challenges anymore.
In other words: those Corporations choosing to address these issues in less developed countries in a more “sustainable way”, they are very likely to attract customers in more developed markets. As simple (or complicated) as that.
