In 2014, Future in Our Hands (Framtiden i våre hender), Norway and Cividep India jointly conducted a study comparing working conditions and wages in two global supply chains that cater to the European market and have links to South India. The report, which was published in February 2015, concluded that the working conditions in both the supply chains are below universally recognized standards set by the International Labour Organization (ILO). The Business and Human Rights Resource Centre invited responses from leading global brands. Read the responses from Dell, H&M and Samsung here.
