Protecting Children’s Rights is everyones business

UNICEF, The UN Global Compact and Save the Children recently launched a set of ten business principles established to support and protect children’s rights.

What I find interesting is that these principles go beyond only focusing on the issue of child labor. The principles take a holistic approach to how the business community can support children’s rights and wellbeing. For example principle #6 focus on responsible marketing towards children. Principle #9 focus on how companies can contribute to help children in emergency situations. Principle #3 focus on providing decent working conditions for young people, parents and caregivers. This initiative clearly demonstrate that companies can take more responsibility for children in the communities and countries they operate in.
