Human Resources Without Borders

Human Resources Without Borders is an independant NGO working in the ground for more than 12 years. Its mission is to take concrete action that prevent forced and child labor in the work place, in the sub-contracting supply chain. Its philosophy favors questioning rather than judgement, dialogue rather than interventionism, and support rather than substitution. HRWB acts within the companies, on the ground of the supply chain, through pilot projects and pragmatic approaches to reconcile the legitimate interests of all parties – from the buyer, to the workers, to both parties on both ends of the chain.

Given the complexity of the problems of forced labour and child labour, it is not possible for one actor to act alone. That is why, in December 2017, HRWB launched a fund to prevent the risks of child labour and forced labour. As such, this fund intends to join forces around a common cause. EcoVadis has just participated alongside companies as diverse as Maisons du Monde, Crédit Agricole, Total and Petzl.

HRWB won the Bronze Medal for Innovation at the 2016 Purchasing Trophy. HRWB works under the high patronage of His Excellency François Delattre, Ambassador of France to the UN.
