Children´s Rights in Southeast Asia 2020

Global Child Forum is currently collecting children’s rights data on 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 AfricaSouthern AfricaSoutheast 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 will receive their individual scorecard in Q3 2020 with 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 is collaboration with the Boston Consulting Group. For more information on the report methodology, please click here.
