ECPAT International – Code of Conduct

SVH & PVH Group of Companies have decided to sign and implement the Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism.

Suppliers of tourism services adopting the code commit themselves to implement the following six criteria: 


1. To establish an ethical policy regarding commercial sexual exploitation of children.
2. To train the personnel in the country of origin and travel destinations.
3. To introduce a clause in contracts with suppliers, stating a common repudiation of commercial sexual exploitation of children.
4. To provide information to travelers by means of catalogues, brochures, in-flight films, ticket-slips, home pages, etc.
5. To provide information to local "key persons" at the destinations.
6. To report annually.

In the following months SVH & PVH Goup of Companies will work on implementing these 6 criteria. We aim at achieving these 6 criteria and thus the signing of the Code of Conduct by the end of February 2009.
