Dialogue with natural rubber suppliers continues

Dialogue with natural rubber suppliers in several sessions, with the purpose of information gathering and as a precautionary approach, continued in 2016–2017 concerning natural rubber from Southeast Asia and Africa as a continuation from measures in 2014–2015 in Sri Lanka, where Trelleborg assembled more than 1,000 representatives of direct and indirect suppliers of natural rubber to a series of information meetings on the Code of Conduct and child labor. The image shows the principle value chain for natural rubber, the many production steps and the relatively long distance between Trelleborg’s production units and rubber producers.
