Is the company committed to ensuring product safety / product responsibility in relation to products and services that are likely to be used or consumed by children?

Scoring options

Rationale

It is important that a company shows commitment to ensuring the safety of the child consumer/user (even indirectly), thereby also recognizing that the needs of the child differ from to the needs of the adult consumer, by e.g. commitment to: conduct testing and research of products/services that could be consumed by children; ensure that children aren’t harmed by being exposed to a product/service.

What are we looking for?

A statement that clearly sets out the company’s commitment to ensuring product safety in relation to children e.g. in Code of Conduct, Sustainability Report or Annual Report.
