CCR CSR (known as The Centre for Child Rights and Business since 2021) is thrilled to announce the appointment of our new Senior Vice President, Outreach and Communications, Mark Robertson. Mark joined the CCR CSR team in June 2020, supporting the delivery and development of The Centre’s services. Based in London, U.K., Mark will also be working with partners and businesses in Europe and North America to help them improve their direct and indirect impact on children in supply chains.
“We’re very happy that Mark has joined our growing CCR CSR family and are really excited about the new possibilities his appointment will create. With Mark being based in Europe, we are confident that we can scale up our initiatives and support more children and their families,” said Ines Kaempfer, CEO of The Centre in Hong Kong.
Commenting on his appointment, Mark said:
“I am really excited to be taking up this new role with The Centre. I am deeply inspired by the organisation’s successful track record in helping companies to positively impact children and parents’ lives through child-friendly supply chain operations. I look forward to working with our talented team to develop our programmes and support more businesses to advance child rights”.
Mark brings over 15 years of experience in sustainability and supply chain issues, working with business, investors, and not-for-profit organisations to drive improvements across environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
Prior to joining The Centre, Mark was Senior Vice President at the ICTI Ethical Toy Program, a leading responsible sourcing programme for the global toy, play and entertainment industries. He has also worked as Head of Communications at ethical trade service provider Sedex, and has held positions at responsible investment research firm EIRIS Vigeo.
Mark is passionate about child rights and labour standards, and a firm believer that being more responsible creates better businesses.
