The European Commission believes that CSR is important for the sustainability, competitiveness, and innovation of EU enterprises and the EU economy. It brings benefits for risk management, cost savings, access to capital, customer relationships, and human resource management.

Main issues we are tackling

The European Commission believes that CSR is important for the sustainability, competitiveness, and innovation of EU enterprises and the EU economy. It brings benefits for risk management, cost savings, access to capital, customer relationships, and human resource management. It also offers a set of values on which to build a more cohesive society and on which to base the transition to a sustainable economic system.  While CSR has a particularly strong resonance in Western Europe, it took root slowly in Central and Eastern Europe. Just in recent years, CSR became a “hot” topic in CE countries that are increasingly integrating themselves into the global political and economic system.

Given the cultural differences, economic situations and National legislations among the participating EU countries, CSR implementation has reached different level of development, influencing the training offer (at different level) and the provision of professional support by business consultants.
