[PDF] CSR Working Paper - Sustainability reporting on children’s rights

Public reporting will be one way in which stakeholders can and will hold companies accountable for implementing the [UN Children's Rights & Business] Principles. In most cases companies will be expected to integrate children’s rights into existing sustainability reporting in a much more robust way than is done at present. This paper has three aims: [1] To provide an overview of corporate reporting on children’s rights. It points to key gaps in this reporting, underscoring areas UNICEF should consider prioritizing in its dialogue with companies. [2] To lay the groundwork for UNICEF to create reporting guidance that will support the children’s rights principles and be aligned with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). [3] To serve as a discussion starter with GRI and other key stakeholders with whom UNICEF should work in creating reporting guidance, particularly as GRI rolls out its next generation of guidelines, the G4.
