A discussion on the growing role of corporate social responsibility as a core ideology within business strategies, activities and innovations.
There is a growing understanding that all companies have a responsibility to take action in response to the increasing social and environmental challenges of our world today - climate change, social inequality, deforestation to name a few. These challenges are affecting companies’ employees, their customers, the communities in which they operate, and ultimately their bottom lines. The cumulative effect is driving businesses to act more ethically and sustainably as part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR).
With this increasing consideration for CSR comes a growing need for future business leaders and employees to establish the right skills and a broad knowledge set to fulfil stakeholder expectations and respond to current and future challenges. This event will examine the growing role of corporate social responsibility in traditional business activity, exploring the ways in which CSR and sustainability are now understood as core components of business strategies, activities and innovations.
