The State of Children’s Rights and Business 2023

Communications Toolkit

Share your news

You work hard to ensure that your operations are sustainable and that you adhere to the latest reporting standards.

Transparency matters to you and your business. Why? Because consumers care, investors care, employees care, journalists care and families and children care. Now it’s time to let your stakeholders know what you have achieved so far in terms of your company’s respect for children’s rights in your operations.  They are interested, and who knows, you just might inspire other companies, organisations and people along the way!

This communications toolkit is designed to make it easier for you to share your success. We’re proud that you are on this journey with us – and we hope you are too. 

Ways to communicate

Let your networks know! Send out a press release and spread the word on social media, with the messages and images provided below.

Blog post: If you currently have an active blog, use it to highlight your benchmark score. You are also welcome to pitch a post idea for the Global Child Forum Blog  Click here to contact us about a collaboration.

Annual Report or Sustainability Report: Share your benchmark score and children’s rights policies, programmes and performance in your reports to your stakeholders.

Let your employees – or those that you positively impact – tell the story:

Empower social media-savvy employees to use your organisation’s platforms like Instagram Stories, Facebook Live, and Snapchat to talk directly to your audience! Energise colleagues, build brand, and engage followers.

Don’t forget to use our hashtags #GCFbenchmark and #GCFbenchmark23. Hashtags act as a filter for online conversations and help your content reach new and relevant audiences. By adding these hashtags to the caption text of your X, Instagram, LinkedIn or Facebook post, your message will be easier for others to see and find.

When communicating around your benchmark score, we ask that you clearly indicate the following:

‘Global Child Forum bases its benchmark scores on a company’s publicly available information, systematically assessing a corporate’s response to impacts on children’s rights. Scores are not a measure of actual compliance with policies, outcomes of policies and/or programmes, nor should scores be construed as investment advice.  Read more about the methodology here.
