3.1.2 Community impacts

Is the company committed to reducing its negative community impacts (e.g. displacement when acquiring land for business use) and increasing its positive contribution to the local community?

Scoring options

  • 10: Yes, the company is committed to impacting the community and advancing development with relevance to children’s rights, beyond the scope of its own operations.
  • 5: Yes, the company is committed to increasing positive impact and/or reducing its negative impact on the community
  • 0: No, the company is not explicitly committed to reducing its negative community impacts and increasing its positive contribution to the local community

Rationale

A commitment to the community shows a company’s commitment to society as well as an awareness of the impacts companies can have on the wider community and its license to operate. It also shows understanding of the corporate responsibility to protect its surrounding community beyond the scope of a company’s operations.

What are we looking for?

A clear commitment of the company to the communities (including children) beyond the scope of its own operations. This can be found e.g. in the Sustainability Report or Annual Report.
