Promoting children’s rights
Handelsbanken collaborates with the children’s rights organisations the World Childhood Foundation and ECPAT, which work to prevent sexual abuse of children. Supporting children and young people is a major part of the Bank’s social sustainability work. Together with the World Childhood Foundation and ECPAT, we aim to promote children’s development and rights in society.
The collaboration includes spreading knowledge, both among employees and customers, through, for example, lectures, customer meetings, social media, and newsletters. We contribute expertise from different parts of the Bank, and, together with the World Childhood Foundation and ECPAT, find ways to prevent our banking services from being used for payments related to material depicting sexual abuse.
