We offer a range of services covering child labour prevention and remediation, child rights impacts and risks assessments, family-friendly workplaces, young worker development and more. Our services support companies to protect and promote child rights across their operations and supply chains, helping you to manage risks and meet regulatory requirements while at the same time creating positive impacts for working families, children and youth in your supply chain. 


From top management all the way down to sub-contracting and raw material sites, we connect business interests and activities to realities on the ground and turn concepts into action. Crucially, we systematically measure the impacts of the programmes and services we deliver for workers, children and factories – helping to demonstrate return on investment and strengthen the business case for child rights.
