In turn, UNICEF helps companies strengthen their commitment to the communities in which they operate and achieve greater social impact and responsibility.
Corporate social sustainability & impact
Children and young people are stakeholders of business – as consumers, dependents of workers, emerging employees and future business leaders. They are also key members of the communities and environments in which business operate. Investing in children and young people is good for business: it provides the foundation for a safe and sustainable future where social and economic development and progress go hand-in-hand.
The interests of children and of business are intimately linked: resilient and sustainable societies and business environments will only be possible if each child rights are protected and promoted. It is equally in the interest of business to put the interests of children and young people at the core of their business models and practices.
Corporate partners – from SAMIL, Haggar, CTC Group, DAL, COFFTEA and others—are leveraging their know-how, resources and driving innovation to support UNICEF Sudan’s work to reach every child. By fostering the rights of children and young people, UNICEF aims to engage businesses to build a safer world, for every child.
We now call on all businesses in Sudan to adopt the Child Rights Business Principles and to join us in calling for and making greater investments for all children in Sudan.
