The bad working conditions in electronics companies in Asia have been in the news quite a bit lately. I love cool gadgets and consumer products. I want to have a good feeling owning them. Therefore, I want that the manufacturing of electronics is taking place under reasonable working conditions.
A new campaign started by a group of NGOs called Procure IT Fair is trying to raise awareness about the working conditions and environmental pollution in the production of computers.
ProcureITfair asks politicians and public purchasers to use their (buying) powers to demand compliance with international labour rights and ecological standards in the global supply chain of computers.
A Petition you can support currently is aimed at European Universities to use their buying power demanding social responisibility from manufacturers.
I definitely would like to see this become a global campaign.
