As part of our upcoming global benchmark, Global Child Forum has been assessing some of the world’s largest companies on a set of children’s rights indicators. We want to know how companies report on children’s rights – what are they doing well and where do they need to improve. The global study covers 6 regions, 9 sectors, and benchmarks companies against 27 indicators.
Benchmarked companies have received their preliminary scorecards and have been given an opportunity to comment on their scores. The complete 2021 Global Report will be launched in Q4 2021 and will then be available for download here on our website. Prior to the public launch, all benchmarked companies will have received their final scorecards.
ABOUT THE SELECTION OF COMPANIES
In 2020, Global Child Forum joined the World Benchmarking Alliance and adopted their SDG2000 to our universe. From this list, we have selected 832 companies to be benchmarked based on revenue (2020), geographical location and sector spread.
This year, Global Child Forum will have a special focus on the Technology and Telecom sector. In addition to the companies that are assessed as part of the global benchmark, an additional 132 global Technology & Telecom companies will therefore be assessed.
