Respecting human rights in sugar cane production

Respecting human rights in sugar cane production

We are working in collaboration with Grupo Santos and Mars to improve the health and safety conditions of cane cutters from the Huasteca region in Mexico. This is a three year program which aims to reduce the risks of accidents and dehydration during the manual harvest and improve the access of works to hygiene services, as part of a broader initiative to ensure the respect of Human rights in the sugar cane production.

As results of the first year of implementation, we have trained over 700 people -including producers, cane cutters, field workers and technicians-, provided personal protective equipment to 800 people and reduced the risks of accidents by 30% in comparison with 2019.
