Second Annual Global Children’s Rights and Business PrinciplesEvent (12 May 2014, Nairobi, Kenya)
The Second Annual Global Children’s Rights and Business Principles (CRBP) event took stock of achievements and showcased how companies, globally and regionally, have used the Principles to advance efforts to respect and support children’s rights, and identified areas for improvement. Attended by 150 representatives from business, Government, academia and civil society, the event placed a special focus on child rights and business in Africa – highlighting key challenges for achieving children’s rights in Africa, and the role of business and sustainability in the region.

The Children’s Rights and Business Principles identify actions that all business should take to respect children’s rights – that is, to prevent and address any adverse impacts on children’s human rights – as well as measures business is encouraged to take to help support and advance children’s rights. The Principles were developed in consultation with business experts, child rights experts, civil society, Governments and children. Save the Children, UNICEF and the UN Global Compact hope they will serve as an inspiration and guidepost for all businesses, everywhere in their interactions with children. www.childrenandbusiness.org
