The State of Children's Rights and Business 2022
Tech & Telecom Deep Dive

February 2022

Tech & Telecom Deep Dive

Our collective lives have been reshaped by Covid-19 when it comes to dependence on digital tools, with all aspects of society growing more reliant on the technology and telecommunications (T&T) sector. Educational systems are no exception, utilizing a combination of TV, radio, online and mobile platforms to deliver remote learning. Laptops are as commonplace as chalkboards. At the same time, tech equity issues have multiplied. 

Because the influence of the T&T sector on children’s lives will, in all likelihood, continue to expand, Global Child Forum felt the time was right to take a close look at our findings on this sector’s performance with regard to children. This sector-specific benchmark allows for a deeper analysis and understanding of the performance of individual companies and sub-industries. 

The reality is that Covid-19 has triggered global trends detrimental to children. Economic downturns that increase poverty ultimately put pressure on children to become income earners. Or a parent’s illness or death can lead to financial stress that drives children to find work. Covid-19 has also necessitated widespread closure of schools, disrupting education, and alarms are being raised about the potentially long-term negative effects on the next generation’s prospects. Big picture: progress on children’s rights is threatened, and the most vulnerable children are at the highest risk. 

At times like these, citizens usually rely on governments to establish protocols and pathways out of crisis. But, at Global Child Forum we see evidence of the important role that business is playing in Covid-19 recovery – especially in protecting and supporting children. 

The Technology and Telecommunications sector is vast and diverse in its role and its impact. This sector has scored consistently in the top in past benchmarks, and many T&T companies demonstrate an understanding that business impacts children beyond the issue of child labour. We highlight positive changes and offer real world examples of businesses in this sector strategizing ways to contribute to the common good. 

And yet, especially for those companies in the sector with lower average scores, work remains — work made more pressing by the toll the pandemic takes on children. Gaps in performance and opportunities for more vigorous corporate action come to light in our focused look, and we invite this sector’s businesses to use this information as a catalyst. 

Please read the executive summary here. 

Global Child Forum will be launching the Tech and Telecom Deep Dive at the GSMA’s MWC in Barcelona on. March 1. Read more about the event here.

Global Child Forum at GSMA MWC Barcelona

Launching the Tech & Telecommunications report on March 1st

Executive summary

Communications Toolkit

Including Microsoft, Safaricom, Samsung and Vodafone

The investor perspective

About our benchmark

Global Child Forum, in collaboration with the Boston Consulting Group, has been benchmarking companies since 2014. Since then, we have produced 11 regional reports covering Middle East and North AfricaSouthern AfricaSoutheast Asia, the Nordic region and South America, as well as additional Global Benchmark reports in 2019 and 2021.

Our benchmarks are based on publicly available information assessed by Global Child Forum and are accompanied by insights, key take-aways and present wide-ranging recommendations for actions to raise individual company and sector scores.

About the selection of companies

All children have rights. What they don’t always have is a say in their future. That motivates us at Global Child Forum to focus on ways to support the next generation. With that in mind, in 2021-2022 we chose a specific sector, Technology & Telecommunications sector, and considered how change can be accelerated within this area. As part of that effort, we created this sector specific benchmark. It includes 252 of the world’s most influential IT companies (all the companies from the IT & Software Services, Telecommunications and Electronics industries in the SDG2000 list[1]). This study includes the 120 companies from the Technology & Telecommunications sector. In addition, we assessed the remaining 132 companies within the SDG2000 list from the Technology, IT Software & Services, and Telecommunications. This broad scope provides an opportunity for Global Child Forum to engage with companies that are not included in the Global Benchmark Study, which covers only the largest companies in the sector.

Scoring is based on publicly available information (in English) and was collected between March and June 2021. All companies in the study have been informed of their scores and have been given an opportunity to provide feedback on their results.

About the industries included in this study

The Technology and Telecommunications sector[2] is comprised of three industries:

Electronics

The electronics industry includes 93 companies that manufacture electronic devices (e.g. phones, laptops, computers, TVs, etc.) and other electronics components. The value chain includes the raw materials necessary to make these products, such as minerals.

IT Software & Services

This industry includes 55 companies that provide services online, including social media, financial payments, hospitality bookings, retail and home delivery/transport services.

Telecommunications

This industry includes 104 companies that build and host telecoms systems, the components of which include physical, electronic and digital infrastructure.

[1] In 2020, Global Child Forum joined the World Benchmarking Alliance and adopted their SDG2000 as the universe from which companies are selected for our Corporate Sector and Children’s Rights Benchmarks.

[2] The benchmark uses an adapted version of the Refinitiv TRCB Sector Classification system for classifying sectors and industries. A company can only belong to one sector and one industry. Companies are classified based on available information about their main business operations/source of revenue.

Disclaimer

Global Child Forum basis it’s benchmark scores on a company’s publicly available information, systematically assessing a corporate’s response to impacts on children’s rights. Scores are not a measure of actual company compliance with policies, outcomes of policies and/or programmes. Final scorecards were made available to all companies for fact checking purposes, but not all companies have acknowledged this review process.

Case study; Bayer mitigating root causes of child labour

Mitigating root causes of child labour

Bayer is a German multinational life science company with global headquarter in Leverkusen. The company is comprised of three divisions – Pharmaceuticals, Consumer Health and Crop Science. All three divisions operate globally and engage with numerous subcontractors. The company has a vision expressed by the phrase, “Health for all, hunger for none” as they focus on delivering innovations in healthcare and agriculture. Bayer is guided in fulfilling this vision through its corporate purpose, “Science for a better life”. Bayer’s vision and purpose indicate that the company strives to create societal good within their core business. During the last two decades, Bayer has experienced incidents of child labour in their indirect supply chain, mainly in India among suppliers of seed. In an effort to address these serious incidences, Bayer went beyond policy and initiated its own action program called the Child Care Program (CCP). Established in 2007, the Program is comprehensive, consisting of structured measures to address and act on child labour, including supporting children who are victims of child labour. Since the implementation of its Child Care Program, Bayer has made several advancements within the area of child labour, where they have managed to influence their value chain in India positively by addressing and acting on the issues related to child labour. Download our case study to learn more.
