It’s up to all of us
UN Sustainable Development Goals 5.2 & 16.2 in Agenda 2030 specifically target child sexual exploitation. Think of this initiative as an opportunity for all of us – from governments and civil society to the private sector – to take action and make a real difference
“Protection of children is something that should resonate with everyone, everywhere – and companies have an important role to play. We encourage companies to demonstrate their commitment and take action to prevent child sexual abuse and exploitation.”
Elaine Weidman-Grunewald, Senior Vice President, Chief Sustainability Officer, and Head of Sustainability and Public Affairs, Ericsson

UN Sustainable Development Goal 5.2
Gender inequality persists worldwide, depriving women and girls of their basic rights and opportunities. Achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls will require more vigorous efforts, including legal frameworks, to counter deeply rooted gender-based discrimination that often results from patriarchal attitudes and related social norms.
Child marriage is declining, but not fast enough. Around 2000, nearly 1 in 3 women between 20 and 24 years of age reported that they were married before 18 years of age. Around 2015, the ratio was just over 1 in 4. The decline is driven by an even steeper reduction in the marriage rate among girls under 15 years of age during that period.Learn more

A few high-intensity armed conflicts are causing large numbers of civilian casualties. Progress promoting peace and justice, together with effective, accountable and inclusive institutions, remains uneven across and within regions.
Various forms of violence against children persist, including discipline that relies on physical punishment and psychological aggression. In 76 countries (most are developing countries) with available data from 2005 to 2016, about 8 in 10 children from 1 to 14 years of age were subjected to some form of psychological aggression and/or physical punishment on a regular basis.Learn more
