December 2000

The first ever European Parliament hearing on ethical business took place in Brussels on 22 November. The one-day hearing, open to all members of the European Parliament (MEPs) and the public, took evidence on the marketing of baby milk substitutes in Pakistan and supply chain monitoring in the clothing sector in Indonesia. However, MEPs criticised Adidas and Nestle, for sending representatives from auditing firms, rather than their own company managers, to give evidence on their behalf. The next hearing is scheduled for autumn 2001.
