Wednesday August 26, 2020
Join us for an exploration of COVID-19 and its impacts on labor organizing, supply chains and working conditions in Asia.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the most vulnerable and marginalized have been and will continue to be the hardest hit amid increasing infection rates and deepening economic recession. BSR has released a primer, featuring a three-step approach on how companies can identify vulnerable groups, including BIPOC, and respect their rights in the context of COVID-19.
The COVID-19 pandemic—and resulting economic, political, and social crisis—is the most profound global disruption in decades. To help our members, partners, and community navigate this uncertain time, BSR is publishing a set of three scenarios, each depicting a different possible future in 2025.
In light of COVID-19 and racial injustice, the Healthy Business Coalition (HBC) believes that it is time for the business community to respond to the moment by radically restructuring its support for workers and communities and promoting an equitable future for all.
Through our work addressing modern slavery across supply chains, we have observed an alarming uptick in business actions during the COVID-19 pandemic that may lead to more individuals being forced into conditions of modern slavery, or on the brink thereof.
COVID-19 has aggravated existing inequalities, with rapidly changing business operating environments requiring fast decision-making based on often imperfect information. There is little doubt that some company decisions will have caused harm to employees, local residents, or customers. Companies will be held to account and asked to rectify these harms and to fulfill their duties to provide access to remedy.

COVID-19 has exposed many of the structural and systemic issues disproportionately impacting vulnerable populations, including people of color, LGBTI people, migrants, and more.
