Author: UN Global Compact, UNICEF, Save the Children, Published on: 1 February 2014
Co-hosted by the UN Global Compact, UNICEF and Save the Children, this webinar will present what children’s rights mean for business and how companies can respect and support children’s rights in their decisions, activities and relationships. In this context, the webinar will present a set of tools by UNICEF and Save the Children that provide companies with practical guidance on how to integrate child rights considerations into broader risk management processes, as well as share examples of actions taken by international companies both at Head quarters level and towards the supply chain supported by local expertise. These tools and services have been designed to ‘demystify’ the connection between children’s rights and business. These tools follow and build on the Children’s Rights and Business Principles, which were developed by UNICEF, Save the Children and the UN Global Compact.
