Child Labour Remediation and Monitoring System
In 2012, we set up our Child Labour Remediation and Monitoring System (CLMRS) in Côte d’Ivoire. The system is designed to help us identify children at risk of child labour in each cocoa community, along with the conditions and root causes that put them at risk.
When we identify children at risk, we work with our partners and the community to address the problem, as well as raising awareness of child labour issues.
We have introduced CLMRS in 32 farmer co-operatives, and plan to roll it out to all Nestlé Cocoa Plan co-operatives (around 79 in total) by the end of 2016.
To the best of our knowledge, we are the first cocoa purchaser to set up such a system to tackle child labour.
