In order to promote, strengthen and scale up the Mother and Child-Friendly Seal for Responsible Business, we form strategic partnerships with a range of organisations. We also collaborate on pilot innovations with our collaborative pioneers to test out innovative ideas and concepts that will benefit children and their families.
