Welcome to an open webinar with NBIM, Arabesque, Norsif and Global Child Forum
23 June 2022 at 10.30-11.15 CET online
Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM), Arabesque, Norsif and Global Child Forum hereby invite you to discover how children's rights can be incorporated into stewardship and investment strategies.
10 years ago, the Children's Rights and Business Principles (CRBPs) were launched. Global Child Forum identified an opportunity to use them as a broader instrument of change to positively impact children. Since 2013, alongside Boston Consulting Group, they have benchmarked thousands of companies using our methodology which was built on the CRBPs.
More recently, they have been helping investors incorporate the underlying data into stewardship and investment strategies.
Join us to hear:
Georg Kell, Chairman of Arabesque, on the development of the CRBPs, why they were founded and how they have progressed to become a tool for investors
Caroline Erikson, Head of Social Initiatives, NBIM, on how important children's rights is to their work and how they are using Global Child Forum data to incorporate children's rights into stewardship and investment strategies
Global Child Forum on the work we do and the data sets that we are sharing with the financial sector
