Nordic hotel chain bans porn due to connections with sex trafficking

20130706-131032.jpg

Yay! 🙂 It’s great to see a major hotel chain taking a strong stand against pornography because of how it fuels sex trafficking! Check out the details below!

[TheLocal] — “We believe it is a natural part of our social responsibility to not support an industry that contributes to trafficking or other forms of trafficking,” said Torgeir Silseth, Nordic Choice Hotels CEO, in a statement.

The decision will take immediate effect and apply to the chain’s 168 properties across the Nordic region.

The decision is the result of a partnership with Unicef that began in 2008 and the recent adoption of new ethical guidelines including a zero tolerance policy against prostitution.

In 2012 some 2,500 of the firm’s employees chose as a prioritized area Unicef’s “Free to Grow” project, which works to protect child victims of trafficking and sexual abuse.

“Through ‘Free to grow’, and our new ethical guidelines, we as a company seek to contribute to the important work Unicef is doing to combat this problem,” said Hedda Skaug, HR & CR Manager at Nordic Choice Hotels in a statement.

According to Skaug, some 1.2 million children are trafficked annually with 70 percent suffering sexual exploitation and many sold into both prostitution and the porn industry.
