SOMO ICT Sector Report

The ICT sector is young, complex, growing and dynamic. From the perspective of sustainable development there is less attention paid to this industry then there is to other manufacturing industries. Until recently, media and public attention on the issue of labour standards had focused primarily on the garment and footwear sectors. Research has revealed, however, that there are major problems in the production of hardware.This report aims to raise awareness of the environmental, human and regulation problems in the ICT sector, and in particular in the production of hardware. Secondly the studies carried out by SOMO aim to widen the campaign base in the ICT hardware sector in Europe and elsewhere, to provide information for campaigns and to lobby on improving conditions in the ICT supply chain. read more less
