Every business activity of a company has a direct or indirect impact on children and their rights. Regardless of the business sector, companies can shape this impact positively and thus contribute to a more child-friendly future – globally, regionally and locally. In order to ensure better protection of people and the environment from negative impacts, new legal due diligence requirements for companies apply in Switzerland since January 1st 2022. This legal development goes hand in hand with comparable legislative initiatives in other countries in Europe as well as at the EU level.

The pressure to act is growing, but at the same time the increased expectations towards the private sector offer opportunities, too. Companies that take on responsibility in their own operations and in cooperation with suppliers gain direct competitive advantages. These include, for example, increased employee satisfaction, improved product quality, product innovations and a better brand image among customers.
