The Company is proud to partner with many leading organizations, including the International Tourism Partnership, ECPAT-USA and Polaris Project, who share the same commitment to human rights and the safety of children around the world.

As Wyndham Worldwide employs people and conducts business all around the world, our operations are also subject to many different laws, customs and cultures. All associates are required to obey the law and comply with specific standards relating to legal obligations, ethics and business conduct.

Ranked among the World’s Most Ethical Companies, the Company’s approach to ethical practices begins at the top with the Company’s Board of Directors and cascades throughout the organization. The Business Principles, the Company’s code of conduct, provides guidance on ethical issues and promotes a lawful and ethical business environment for Wyndham Worldwide and its associates.

Wyndham Worldwide has publicly acknowledged our commitment to operate our business in a manner consistent with the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights and Global Compact since 2007 when Wyndham Worldwide first published the Company’s Human Rights Policy Statement. The Modern Slavery Statement highlights our efforts to combat slavery and human trafficking within the Company’s sphere of influence during the financial year January 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017.

In addition, Wyndham Worldwide condemns all forms of exploitation of children. The Company does not hire child labor, and supports the elimination of exploitive child labor. The Company also is supportive of laws duly enacted to prevent and punish the crime of sexual exploitation of children, and cooperates with law enforcement authorities to address any such instances. In 2011, Wyndham Worldwide became one of the largest U.S. hospitality companies to take a stand against the commercial sexual exploitation of children by signing the Tourism Child-Protection Code of Conduct (The Code).
