Stamping out Exploitation in Travel
A study benchmarking the travel industry’s progress in fighting human trafficking and the commercial sexual exploitation of children by ECPAT-USA. This study establishes a baseline to assess how 70 companies in eight travel industry sectors address and report on the protection of children from commercial sexual exploitation in their business practices.
While it is evident that the travel industry is in many cases prioritizing the protection of children in their business practices, there are often missed opportunities to fight child sex trafficking and learn from best practices across the variety of sectors in the industry. Stamping Out Exploitation in Travel establishes not only an industry baseline and a way to benchmark progress moving forward, but also provides best practice examples and recommendations to expand the work while encouraging cross-learning and collaboration.
The report concludes with a number of recommendations for the private sector, for governments and for the general public.
