ADDENDUM: On January 31, 2023 a correction has been made to section 4.2.b (pag.7) of the ESRS. The corrected information is as follows: "Paraguay is a signatory to several International Labor Organization ("ILO") conventions. In 2009, the Government of Paraguay, together with organizations from the labor sector, the employer sector and the ILO, signed a Tripartite Agreement called the National Program for Decent Work, which establishes, among other issues, the eradication of forced and child labor in the country".
