Child Labour Policy Guide

10 sustainable business approaches to child labour

About this guide

Welcome to Global Child Forum´s guide to build systems for preventing and dealing with child labour in operations and supply chains. This guide was developed from the insight from the Global Child Forum Corporate Sector and Children’s Rights Benchmark, that few companies report transparently on the effects of their child labour policy or show any board level accountability for their child labour responsibilities. To support companies who want to improve their approach to child labour and ensure that they support and protect children in the process, this study presents a set of sustainable business approaches to combat child labour together with examples of emerging business practices.


Who is it for?

The guide can be used by anyone working in sustainability, social impact or human rights, or consultants supporting companies working to improve social sustainability in tackling child labour.
