SITE has been an active and vocal supporter of ECPAT since signing the Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism in 2015
Today, we are proud to say today that that support continues, as SITE has placed in the Top 20 members of ECPAT-USA for 2020.
ECPAT’s mandate is to end the sexual exploitation of children through prostitution; trafficking; online and in the travel and tourism sector. The Code is a set of six voluntary guidelines that travel and tourism companies implement to comprehensively and proactively combat the commercial sexual exploitation of children. To be recognized as a Top Member, companies must implement all six of The Code criteria within their business operations and report publicly on TheCode.Org website.
"We congratulate the Code Top Members, and thank all of our corporate partners for continuing to make child protection a priority at your company," said Yvonne Chen, Director of Private Sector Engagement. "We look forward to continuing to work together toward ending child sex trafficking and exploitation."
SITE are proud to be members of such an important organisation and applaud the work by many of our chapters in supporting ECPAT’s valuable work. If you are interested in getting more involved, please contact SITE’s Industry Relations manager, Sara, at email@example.com
