Who are Electronics Watch?

Guided by workers' rights and priorities, Electronics Watch uses worker-driven monitoring to detect problems in factories.

NWUPC Ltd has joined Electronics Watch as an affiliate member on behalf of members as well as ourselves from 1st September 2019.

Electronics Watch is an independent monitoring organisation set up with the purpose of protecting the rights of workers within supply chains.  Their focus is on working with public sector organisations who purchase electronics and collaborating with them to have a positive impact on workers through the goods the public sector procures.

NWUPC Ltd is excited to be joining Electronics Watch as further demonstration of our commitment to ensuring transparency within our supply chains.  We feel that this is an area where we can have a tangible impact on those involved with the production of goods that we typically buy in volumes that can be aggregated to have a huge value.  We are also pleased to be able to extend this association to our institutions as an additional benefit of NWUPC membership.  This means that as NWUPC members you can demonstrate to your stakeholders that you take the potential risks in your supply chains seriously and are committed to taking positive action.

In 2015 Electronics Watch was formally launched as an independent monitoring organisation, bringing together public sector buyers and civil society organisations in electronics production regions, with experts in human rights and global supply chains.

Electronics Watch is continuously expanding the scope of monitoring to more regions and more suppliers as increasing numbers of public sector organisations choose to share the cost of monitoring and coordinate their engagement with industry through Electronics Watch.
