The Center for Child-Rights and Corporate Social Responsibility (CCR CSR) is contributing to a society that is rapidly changing and not able to ensure the safety and welfare of all children. In 2007 a Memorandum of Understanding for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) was signed between China and Sweden; CCR CSR was launched to honor the terms of that Memorandum.
Our initial funding came from the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, as well as from private companies. CCR CSR has grown into a self sustaining organization, which is able to improve the lives of children and young people in China by providing valuable products and services to corporations that touch the lives of those that we seek to help.
Our growth is a reflection of our ability to service the needs of our clients who want to realize the benefits of improved employee satisfaction, improved workplace communication and a healthy work environment. We not only help our clients engage with their employees to improve their quality of life, but we consult our clients to capture the benefits of a forward thinking CSR policy.
There is economic value in being ahead of legislation and current standards; in being seen as socially responsible by consumers. Integrating a professional child-rights perspective into a business will ensure a more productive, loyal work force, reduce the risk of violating international conventions against child labor and strengthen your brand.
Leaders in the Field
We are regarded as pioneers in the field of Children and Business and therefore seen as a natural meeting point. Through our work we put children at the top of the agenda, improve the lives of children and young people, and help businesses be socially responsible.
We know that businesses start from different positions. Some already understand the value of working with a long-term rights perspective and have come far in their work. Others have not even started. Some may be afraid to begin because of fear of the problems and challenges they may face. We are open and accessible; businesses are always welcome, regardless how far they have come.
