Agenda

Businesses are inseparable from the societies and environments in which they operate. In today’s world, companies need to embrace, support and enact, within their sphere of influence, a set of core values in the areas of human rights, gender equality, labor standards, and the environment. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a management concept that integrates social and environmental concerns into business operations to increase the competitiveness in an inclusive, sustainable, and responsible manner.
