According to Save the Children’s End of Childhood Report, global data shows there are currently around 263 million children out of school, 168 million children involved in child labour and another 6 million children die before they reach their 5th birthday.

Any business, no matter the size will influence the lives of children both directly or indirectly. This is even more crucial in a world where trust is paramount to a company’s social license to operate as it is becoming essential for businesses to be pro-active about good conduct as consumers expect nothing less.

So, in what other ways can businesses better identify, address and prevent the risk of having adverse impacts on children and maximise their positive influences?
 
Join our panel discussion to find out the impact children’s rights can have on your business: 
  • Build up your organisation's reputations 
  • Improve risk management 
  • Enhance business 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
