On the pledge:

ICI and its members pledge that by the end of 2021, at least 540 000 cocoa-growing households in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana will be covered by systems that effectively prevent and address child labour as part of corporate human rights due to diligence efforts, representing approximately 30% of the cocoa supply chain in those countries.

On the implementation:

We will assist our members in aligning around emerging good practices and implementing and embedding effective systems to prevent and address child labour in cocoa-growing communities, while innovating to continuously improve the efficiency and impact of such systems.

On the impact:

Our efforts today aim to increase the coverage of specific programmes designed to combat child labour in the cocoa supply chain so that all those in need are reached.
