Global Child Forum is currently collecting children’s rights data on approximately 250 of the largest companies in Southeast Asia, as part of our 2020 regional benchmark study. The Southeast Asia regional study covers 6 countries and 7 industries, and assesses companies against 27 indicators.
Global Child Forum has been benchmarking companies since 2014 when the first Global Benchmark report was launched. Since then, we have produced 10 regional reports covering Middle East and North Africa, Southern Africa, Southeast Asia, the Nordic region and South America, as well as an additional Global Benchmark report in 2019.
Measuring and presenting data is key to driving societal and economic change. Through concrete evidence and data, benchmarking can lead to industry-wide innovation that leads to positive impact. Companies will be assigned four performance categories based on their score: Beginner, Improver, Achiever, Leader.
The Southeast Asia benchmark report, which is based on publicly available information assessed by Global Child Forum, will be accompanied by insights and key take-aways and present wide-ranging recommendations for actions to raise individual company and sector scores.
The approximately 250 publicly-traded companies benchmarked have received their preliminary scorecard and been given an opportunity to comment on their scores. The complete 2020 Southeast Asia Benchmark Report will be launched in Q4 2020 and will then be available for download from our website.
The benchmark report series is done in collaboration with the Boston Consulting Group. For more information on the report methodology, please click here.

Telia Company asked 7, 000 students across seven countries in the Nordics and Baltics about their experiences from studying from home. Despite challenges and substantial changes in habits that happened overnight, their overall experience has been largely positive. The survey gives insights into how digital schooling can be further developed in the future.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, we face the risk of reverting years of progress. We may see an increase in child labour for the first time in 20 years. This is why ILO and UNICEF decided to look into the ways the crisis is affecting child labour.

Of all the heartbreaking effects of COVID-19, its impact on young people could prove to be one of its most damaging legacies. In fact, the coronavirus crisis risks turning back the clock on years of progress made on children’s well-being and has put children’s rights under serious pressure across the globe. Linda Lodding, Head of Communications at Global Child Forum, takes a closer look at these pressure points.
Global Child Forum is issuing an urgent call for business to create tangible initiatives and forge partnerships which advance children’s rights in your operations, supply chains and in the communities in which you operate. We want to create a movement – to deliver actionable initiatives that contribute to advancing children’s rights. Join us by signing the pledge.
