This year, Global Child Forum is benchmarking some of the world’s most influential companies within Food, Beverage & Personal Care – assessing to what extent they addresses children’s rights in their public reporting. The benchmark scores reveal how well they perform in relation to industrial sectoral and regional peers.

Preliminary scorecards were sent to all included companies in June, giving companies to opportunity to give feedback and respond to our screening.  Based on the company’s score (0-10), companies are considered either as Beginners, Improvers, Achievers, or Leaders.

In collaboration with Boston Consulting Group, Global Child Forum has benchmarked nearly 3,000 of the world’s largest companies latest years. You can see previous reports here.
