UN Features impactmania’s Video: The Future of Business is Responsible
impactmania was invited to India to witness United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in action!
Jaipur Rugs, winner of the German Award Design prize, started with 9 weavers 39 years ago. Today, it works with 40,000 (!) artisans across 600 villages in India — 85 percent are women. impactmania traveled to two villages to witness how these women are provided with work opportunities, education, and support to stay at home and participate in the global workforce without having to migrate to a city and work in factories.
The short video we co-produced was featured at the recent UN Global Compact Conference in New Delhi, India. It shows how a social enterprise at scale addresses women’s equality and responsible production through the example of one woman artisan.
There are millions of women in the global manufacturing supply chains. How do you impact responsible production and consumption?
