Children are key stakeholders of business: they are consumers, family members of employees, young workers, members of communities and environments that host or support private sector activities; children not only represent future employees and company leaders, but are also affected by business activities, operations and relationships now.

The Child Rights and Business Principles (CRBP) identify a range of actions that all businesses should take to respect and support child rights, which can help:

  • Build reputations
  • Improve risk management
  • Enhance the social license to operate - including gaining and maintaining the support of people who live and work where business is conducted
  • Recruit and maintain a motivated workforce
Join our panel discussion to find out how your business can generate real benefits for children and society by integrating CRBP in your future strategy and operations.
