Investment data to reduce child rights risk exposure

Responsible investors are benefitting from Global Child Forum data 

Investors often integrate human rights into their due diligence processes, but they tend to overlook risks related specifically to children. Given that children make up one third of the global population, the potential exposure is significant.

The solution for sustainable investors

Our data, tools and services are relied upon by the financial community, as a means of understanding the risks associated with children’s rights, and the actions needed to mitigate and manage them.

Global Child Forum data sets are free of charge
