Electronics Watch: opening doors for bottom-up monitoring of factories
Electronics Watch is an independent monitoring organisation that helps public procurers to address the rights and safety of workers in their electronics
supply chain. By bringing together many public buyers as “affiliates”, it
allows them to achieve this more effectively than they could on their own.
It does this by offering tools and guidance to buyers and suppliers, and by directly monitoring factories.

Rather than turning away from sourcing locations that are deemed high-risk, some industry partnerships have decided to get hands-on to improve conditions and connect responsible miners to global demand. This way, mining communities
in ‘high-risk’ countries earn vital income, while industry alliances engage with them to improve practices while keeping a close eye on avoiding funding conflict. The aim is to show the industry that it is possible to source responsibly (as per OECD guidelines) from ‘high risk’ locations.
