Children's rights and business processes

Respecting children’s rights in material business processes such as sourcing, network management, communication, marketing and product development is vital. It is important to establish a clear commitment to children’s rights, gain the understanding of what it means for the company, communicate this internally and train employees accordingly.

Incorporating children’s rights into business processes requires expert knowledge of both the business and children’s rights. Therefore, Telia Company together with Save the Children identified the most material processes to work with.

Our ongoing challenge when it comes to including children’s rights in business processes is to raise internal awareness, thereby ensuring that key stakeholders are aware of the company’s commitment to children’s rights and what that means in the different processes. Below are examples of how this is being done, including how it contributes to meet some of the CRBPs.
