Multi-Stakeholder Forum on CSR
8.30am - 6pm | 3-4 February | Brussels
What is the future for CSR in Europe?
European institutions, governments, businesses and civil society organisations are seen as leaders in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), but there is still much to be done. The EU's CSR Strategy has provided a sound framework for actions from 2011-14, but that Strategy is now ready for review and we want to know what you think should be the priorities for 2015-2020. As part of the ongoing review process of the current CSR strategy, the European Commission will hold the next plenary meeting of the Multi-Stakeholder Forum on the 3rd and 4th February 2015, in Brussels. If you want to have your say, and join the debate with top level speakers, register now for the Multi-Stakeholder Forum.
A CSR public consultation already told us that:
- 83% of respondents want the Commission to continue to engage in CSR
- More than 2/3 found the impact of policies so far to have been useful or very useful.
- CSR has an important impact on strengthening the medium-/long-term competitiveness of the EU economy (according to 79%) and its sustainability (81%).
- The Commission should focus on three priorities for the future: (1) working at the international level, (2) raising awareness and (3) improving transparency measures.
The programme will address these issues, either individually, or horizontally where they are relevant to many areas (such as in the case of transparency). But it will not be limited to these and will seek to complement the consultation with a wide-ranging and multi-perspective dialogue.
