Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) means taking responsibility for how a company impacts its local environment. CSR also includes taking responsibility from an economic perspective to a social perspective. Today, CSR ranges further than responsibility for products and services that the companies produce. The UN’s Global Compact is the foundation of the rules in sustainable development. It calls for companies to enforce ten principles regarding human rights, employment law, the environment and corruption inside the respective companies’ sphere of influence. The project supports sustainable development. Global Compact also calls on companies to contribute to a positive social development in the current affairs. The work should occur in cooperation with non-profit organizations.

5 Steps for Social Responsibility and Trafficking

1. Review and Reduce Risk

Your business is prone to trafficking if it involves traveling, hotels, banks, events, web host companies, resource extraction and companies with production stationed in developing countries, etc. In this case, you need to reduce the risk of black-mail and corruption if employees or the company has abandoned business ethics. Do risk analyses, create rules and collaborations in order to prevent trafficking. It would also help if you educate employees and develop procedures.

2. Policy and creating awareness

Discuss the issue with the heads of the company and create a clear policy regarding sex purchase during business trips and production done by sub-contractors, etc. Policies should become a part of company’s code of conduct.

3. Values

What do we stand for? Get people involved and work on the basic principles. Clear rules endorse the employees’ behavior in different situations, which also grant a good work environment.

4. Education

Educating the employees and heads of the company to identify and report suspected signs of human trafficking for sexual purposes and forced labor.

5. Brands and Innovative Collaborations

Tell your customers about the values you defend. Create profile products endorse the work against trafficking. Communicate through campaigns to inspire interested parties and customers. Let more people join and make a difference in stopping trafficking.
