Global Child Forum will participate in CSR Asia for the third year in a row. This year’s event will take place in Centara World Conference Center in Bangkok on 18-19 September. With presentations, panels and discussions based on innovation and emerging trends, conference attendees will explore strategies to move the conversation from rhetoric to results.
Leading a breakfast roundtable on the 19 September, we will offer a sneak peek into the Global Benchmark results before the full launch this fall. During the roundtable discussion, business leaders will discuss solutions to regional children’s rights issues, identified using data from the Children’s Rights and Business Atlas.
Stop by our booth to learn more about our tools, such as the Pledge, and how companies are actively addressing children’s rights in their operations. If you are unable to make it to Bangkok but would like to receive the Global Benchmark report via email, please sign up for our newsletter.
In an effort to provide insights and guidance on how businesses protect – or fall short in protecting – children’s rights in the Southeast Asia region, Global Child Forum’s Benchmark Report makes use of two of our essential research products: The Children Rights and Business Atlas and The corporate sector and children’s rights benchmark. More specifically, insights are provided across three areas where the corporate sector impacts children’s rights: The Workplace, The Marketplace, The Community and the Environment.
Throughout this report, data from the Atlas highlights contextual factors that shape how companies can and should respond to children’s rights. This information is contrasted with the results of the Benchmark scoring for the 20 largest companies in Southeast Asia. A gap analysis provides recommendations for company actions that address risks and create positive impact on children’s rights in the region.
