Investor Perspectives on Children's Rights

Global Child Forum is an independent, global multi-stakeholder platform for informed dialogue and thought leadership on how to advance children’s rights in support of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. This report is part of Global Child Forum’s objective to initiate and share research, raise crucial global awareness, new thinking and cross-sector dialogue regarding children’s rights.

195 investors in Europe and USA were invited to participate in the survey; only 22 responded. Some of the main findings included:

  • Investors typically focus primarily on child labour and less on other children’s rights issues.
  • 32 of the 195 investors have a publicly available responsible investor policy that includes a reference to children’s rights
  • Of the 22 investors who responded, 21 replied that children’s rights have a potentially material impact to their investments.
