The Children’s Rights and Business Principles provide a comprehensive framework for understanding and addressing the impact of business on the rights and wellbeing of children. They are intended to provide inspiration and serve as a guidepost for all businesses in their direct and indirect interactions with children. Their added value lies in providing a tool for business to take a systematic and comprehensive approach to their interactions with children and to see children as a key stakeholder of their business.

The Steering Committee will work to create awareness of the Principles with business around the world and to help businesses better understand and address their impacts on children. In addition, the sponsoring organizations will work with third-party organizations, such as industry leaders in CSR and business and human rights standards to integrate and embed reporting and performance of business on child rights issues.
