Clas Ohlson acknowledged for its children’s rights work

February 2017

In a new study from The Boston Consulting Group and Global Child Forum, the 300 largest listed companies in the Nordics have been assessed on indicators tracking how children’s rights are addressed by corporations.

The global average is 2.9 points while the Nordic average is 2.0. Clas Ohlson is however, with its 7 points out of 9, part of a group of companies recognised as industry leaders.  

“We defined children as important stakeholders to our business several years ago and have worked with a clear focus on children’s rights issues ever since. That this work is being acknowledged is of course pleasing, especially in a renowned study like this. However, there are still much to be done, not least in our ongoing projects for Chinese migrant workers’ families,” says Åsa Portnoff Sundström, Head of Sustainability at Clas Ohlson.
