Children’s Rights

How well does your company stack up against your peers?

For 10 years, Global Child Forum has been benchmarking companies on children’s rights with one goal – to give companies the insights they need to drive positive change. We’re excited to now make our methodology available to companies who have not yet benchmarked in our study.

The self-assessment tool will diagnose your company’s strengths and weaknesses related to children’s rights – and give you a chance to see how well you stack up against the largest global companies in your sector and region. With this compelling evidence, you can drive the change you need in order to achieve your sustainability goals and become a leader in your sector.

How does it work?
The tool will let you assess your company’s efforts on 27 indicators related to children’s rights and business. After completing the survey, you will get a scorecard with your results and, most importantly, also get key insights that can be shared internally to inform your sustainability strategy. Your results will also be compared with your peers. The self-assessment takes around 30 minutes to complete.

This assessment looks into different issues within CSR/ESG on a corporate level and whether your company includes a child rights perspective into these areas. The tool is meant for whoever within your company that has insight into these areas and the public disclosures on them.

Who can take the self-assessment?
In 2020, Global Child Forum joined the World Benchmarking Alliance and adopted their SDG2000 as our universe. From this list, we select the companies to be included in our benchmark.The self-assessment tool is primarily meant for companies included in the SDG2000 list that we have not yet benchmarked.

If you are not within the SDG2000 but are interested in taking the assessment, please send an email request to

Please note that this is a self-assessment and that Global Child Forum will have not verified your final score. Your end result can therefore not be used in public communication nor do Global Child Forum endorse or take responsibility for the results.
