    Migrant workers in the banana industry 2017

    The United Nations International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of all Migrant Workers and Members of their Families (1990) defines a migrant worker as “a person who is engaged or has been engaged in a remunerated activity in a state of which he or she is not a national”. This definition includes temporary migrant workers (e.g. seasonal workers in agriculture) and those coming from a different part of the same country. According to recent ILO estimates, there are 150.3 million migran t workers in the world, of which 48 percent are women. However, in the banana industry migrant workers are predominantly male. This is due to their relative ability to travel according to family responsibilities, and also because of gender discrimination in employment opportunities for women in the industry.

    La Responsabilidad Social Empresarial (RSE) es definida por la Organización de las Naciones Unidas para el Desarrollo Industrial (ONUDI) como un concepto de gestión empresarial "a través del cual una empresa logra un equilibrio de los imperativos económicos, ambientales y sociales (triple cuenta de resultados) mientras al mismo tiempo hace frente a las expectativas de los accionistas y las partes interesadas", distinguiéndola de los conceptos de caridad, patrocinio o filantropía. E n el marco de la RSE, las empresas han desarrollado códigos de conducta internos voluntarios (CdC) en los que se comprometen con normas sociales, laborales y medioambientales.
