An interesting move from the United Global Compact to focus on down-to-earth CSR issues and advocate for the adoption of better health safety standards in the supply chain. This is a little reactive after major incidents such as the one at the Tazreen factory fire and Rana Plaza factory collapse that led to a 800+ death toll (not 400 as mentioned), but welcome.

This interesting analysis from CSR Wire about the Tazreen tragedy highlights the failed control system and lack of supply chain monitoring (Walmart was not aware Tazreen was among its supplier base), combined with financial imperative (increased orders at year end) among the main causes that account for the tragic incidents.
