IEH - Ethical Trading Initiative Norway

Better Business, Better Lives

This film helps to raise awareness about how retailers, brands and importers’ business practices affect the conditions in the supply chain.

Although this film portrays experiences from Chinese suppliers, we emphasize that manufacturers in many other countries and industries face the same challenges. The time given to produce a product is becoming shorter and is one of the fundamental causes of excessive overtime among workers in global supply chains. Moreover, pressure from retailers for reduced prices makes it difficult for suppliers to pay a decent wage to their workers. The aim of the film is to inspire responsible companies to get started on ethical trade.
