Protecting and empowering children online

In 2017, Telia decided to make children’s rights a focus area within the company’s approach to responsible business. In connection with this decision, the “Children’s Rights and Business Principles” (CRBP), developed by Save the Children, UNICEF and UN Global Compact, were adopted as a framework for our work to empower and protect children online. The basis of this framework is stated in the first principle, that companies should “Meet their responsibility to respect children’s rights and commit to supporting the human rights of children”.
