Corporate Social Responsibility Pledge by companies to avoid objectification

In a spirit of respect and responsibility towards our consumers and broader society, and in recognition of the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women and Convention on the Rights of the Child, we PLEDGE to be respectful of women and girls in our advertising and marketing by refraining from:

  • publishing images or messages that objectify[1] women or girls;
  • carrying products, or providing services, that involve images or messages that objectify women or girls;
  • promoting products or services that are designed to encourage children to think sexual appeal is essential to social success;
  • carrying/promoting products to girls, or providing services to girls that bear any mark, brand or logo associated with pornography or the systematic objectification of women.

We further pledge to rectify any error as soon as possible.


[1] Objectification means presenting a person as an object for another person’s use or enjoyment, and it includes a gratuitous focus on a particular body part or parts
