"Decade of Action" - United Nations honor Recaro with Pioneer Award for contribution to child road safety

The “Decade of Action for Road Safety” Summit was held in Beijing by the United Nations for Road Safety Organization and the China Automotive Technology & Research Center on November 24th, 2016. RECARO Child Safety was invited as an outstanding business representative and great contributor to the important cause.

This year’s United Nations “Decade of Action for Road Safety” Summit deeply discussed ways to improve the overall road safety and post-collision response as well as how to push car safety technologies. An appeal was made to focus even more on improving people’s knowledge on road safety and universal child safety.

Each year the summit honors companies which contributed significantly to children’s safety on the road. Recaro was awarded with the Pioneer Award of the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety. The award was presented by David Ward, Secretary General of Global New Car Assessment Programme (Global NCAP).

In the past year, Recaro has been involved in campaigns for the safety of children in traffic and has been working with the team of the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety. During their tour across China and throughout dozens of cities together they spread the knowledge of travel safety for millions of children. “There is still a lot to do when it comes to children’s travel safety, but we as a company only have limited possibilities. Therefore we call on industry associations, the social media world as well as other non-profit and social organizations to support us in the promotion of the concept of children travel safety in order to protect more children in China and throughout Asia”, says Emanuel Baur, Sales Director Asia at Recaro Child Safety.
