How are South American companies doing on children’s rights?
Global Child Forum is conducting research for our upcoming benchmark report – Children’s Rights and the Corporate Sector in South America. This study is the latest in a series of regional and global benchmarks, done in collaboration with the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), which scans companies from all compass points and identifies if they report on children’s rights indicators.
Do South American companies integrate children’s rights into core operations? Address and report on children’s rights issues? Engage with programs that benefit children?
The South American benchmark study scores 283 top companies headquartered in Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Venezuela, Ecuador and Uruguay on these, and other, indicators. The benchmark then assigns both an aggregate regional score as well as individual company scores. All companies included in the study also receive a scorecard with their result and are given an opportunity to respond or give feedback.
The benchmark report will be launched at the Global Child Forum on South America on April 4th 2017 in São Paulo, Brazil.

Companies of all sizes, in all sectors and regions, have an obligation to respect children’s right in their operations. This isn’t only a societal imperative, it also makes good business sense. While many companies present stellar examples of how both business and society can benefit from respecting children’s rights, most companies grapple with identifying how best to address children’s rights issues within their operations. Our benchmarking reports let companies know where they stand vis-à-vis their region and their sector on a number of basic children’s rights indicators and allows participating companies to identify their areas of strength and pinpoints their shortcomings.
