Theme pack: Corporate social responsibility
All societies need productive enterprises, but enterprises can only operate in a stable and productive society. While this is not news to most people, it is the likely reason why an increasing number of companies are looking at the issue of corporate social responsibility (CSR). For global companies in particular, whose value chains extend into emerging economies and developing countries, CSR represents a growing challenge. The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH helps companies to organise their operations in such a way that business success goes hand in hand with improving living conditions for local people.
