An Agreed-Upon Approach

By establishing an agreed upon approach, the WEST Principles aim to maximize the impact of technology-driven efforts to engage workers in global supply chains and ensure they can work with dignity and free from abuse. Initiated by a group of technology providers, the Principles seek to engage stakeholders at all levels of the global supply chain, including workers, worker organizations, the private sector, and governments, to collectively develop a roadmap to operationalize their use.
