This spring, 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.
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.
Benchmarked companies have now received their preliminary scorecards and have been given an opportunity to comment on their scores during the feedback period (June 21st – July 16th).
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 for the world’s children.
Is your company a Beginner, Improver, Achieve or Leader? Review your score card and find out. The complete 2021 Global Report will be launched in Q4 2021 and will then be available for download here on our website.
For more information on the report methodology, and to view all the companies included in the Global Benchmark 2021, see below.
*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 be assessed.
