The Code was specifically created to be a child protection tool used by the travel and tourism industry to combat the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) in the context of such activities.

The Code has been specifically developed to target CSEC in travel tourism, encouraging the practice of responsible, sustainable tourism by tourism companies from around the globe. By enacting responsible policies, members of The Code play an essential role in protecting children from the sexual exploitation that is particularly prevalent in this industry. In addition, The Code exists in order to inform travelers that CSEC is always a crime, in every country.
