This booklet is meant as inspiration and provides practical information for managers and employees, who have responsibilities for addressing child labour within the company’s operations and supply chain. The booklet contains business practices and lessons learned building on the experiences of the companies participating in the Child Labour Platform during its first year. The discussions of the practices and lessons learned have been informed by the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and its various components.

The practices described are from different sectors and different regions and therefore potentially applicable in many sectors and countries. They are neither static, nor exhaustive: as these practices and experiences may evolve, they could be refined and built on during future phases of the Child Labour Platform.
