  • 5: Yes, the company is working actively/driving programmes/projects focused on improving working conditions of employees in own operations and/or supply chains (e.g. working hours, wages and other non-monetary benefits, health, prevention of abuse/harassment and promoting gender equality) but these programmes / projects are not explicitly focused on children, young workers, parents and caregivers
  • 0: No, there is no evidence of the company working actively/driving programmes/projects focused on children’s rights in the workplace in own operations or supply chains

Rationale

One important way to address corporate impact on children’s lives, is to set up activities that strive to address/remediate any negative impact and/or create positive impact for children (and their parents). By having a workplace that takes into consideration the needs of parents, a positive indirect impact for children can be e.g. more time with their parents, access to daycare/schooling and ability to breastfeed for a longer time period.

What are we looking for?

Any initiative by the company that showcases commitment to addressing the needs of parents; e.g. flexible working conditions for parents and caretakers; decent wages; access to daycare and education; parental support/training.
