TFT Respect resources

TFT is currently developing a range of materials to help eradicate human exploitation from global supply chains.

Please note: Respect was previously known as No Exploitation.

We see ‘Respect’ as having two core elements: respecting workers, and respecting communities.

We are adding a number of resources to our website in support of this. These resources are used by our social teams, our members and their suppliers. The resources can be shared through industry to help others working to tackle these issues.

We created the TFT Respect Principles as an overarching set of beliefs from which all our resources stem. The Principles are informed by universal human, labour and indigenous rights issues

The resources include guidelines focusing on a specific topic (for example, palm oil guidelines outlining working conditions) and there are factsheets that hone in particular issues raised in the guidelines (for example, child labour). We are also developing supplementary materials to go with many of our factsheets so that people applying the guidelines have working examples of useful templates, such as a ‘no child labour’ policy.

Most of the materials here are created by TFT, though for practical reasons we have also included information on relevant legislation.
