The Power To Empower
Cividep India attempts to empower workers and communities and to ensure that businesses comply with human and labour rights and environmental standards. With this objective, we educate workers, study effects of corporate conduct, dialogue with various stakeholders and advocate for policy change.
Cividep India was formed in the year 2000. Our research is in the export-oriented consumer electronics, readymade garment, leather product, tea and coffee plantation and mining industries. Our workers’ rights initiatives have focused on the garment, electronics, manufacturing, and plantation sectors. We work to ensure that human rights abuses, environmental damage, unfair business practices and violations of workers’ rights by companies are addressed.
