Vi jobber for en rettferdig verden i økologisk balanse

We want a new ethics law in Norway which requires large brand names to provide transparency in working conditions. This will make it easier to put pressure on companies that do not produce ethically.
How the global brands are not doing enough to ensure a dignified life for workers in the garment and electronics industry in India.
Mobile phone companies have managed to make small masterpieces of technology and entertainment. But they have not succeeded in avoiding scandal and terrible working conditions. The Future in Our Hands has visited one of the cities where iPhone is produced: Shenzhen in China.
Even though sugar, coffee and cocoa are grown in developing countries, Norway imports these products from Europe. While developing countries produce the raw materials, a large share of the profits remains in Europe.
The farm workers’ story of how South Africa’s wine is produced is seldom heard. A bottle of red wine from the wrong vineyard carries the scent of suppression and the taste of bitter tears.
Not everyone is happy about the enormous influx of second-hand clothes to Uganda. Trade unions and business executives believe it will finish off the local textile industry.
Norwegians export more than double as much second-hand clothes as 10 years ago, altogether 20,000 tonnes in 2011. Perhaps your used trousers or tight top will find a new owner at the second-hand market in Uganda?
Findus utilises the same Swedish suppliers of palm oil as the other large Norwegian food manufacturers. The Swedish partner will not disclose which plantations in Southeast Asia they utilise.
Greedy palm-oil companies in Southeast Asia are tearing down untouched rain forest in their hunt for new land. Norwegian food producers such as Mills assert that that they use only palm oil from sustainable plantations. But their Swedish importers refuse to state which plantations the oil comes from.
Worn-looking clothes direct from the store have a price. Manual sandblasting with quartz sand gives the clothes a worn look but inflicts the risk of the incurable lung disease silicosis on the workers, according to a new report.

Indian workers make manhole covers for the Nordic market for a miserable wage and without protective gear, assurance or sick pay. A Norwegian firm sells the covers on to other Nordic countries.
Mizan Hatim Engineering will after all be permitted to participate in competitions for new contracts for Telenor’s subsidiary, Grameenphone, in Bangladesh. Norwatch has been informed of this by Telenor’s public relations officer, Pål Kvalheim. Mizan was the only supplier to be excluded when the scandal about the working conditions in Bangladesh became known.
