Initiatives by Industry
The business community is being challenged to be more innovative and competitive, more productive and profitable, and more responsible and sustainable. There are pressures to deliver more value for shareholders, more security and opportunity for employees, and more collaboration and transparency with stakeholders on the solutions for issues such as those relating to corporate governance, environmental protection, corruption, human rights, human resource management practices, consumer protection, supplier relations, health and safety, and others.
Businesses have in many instances recognized the challenges and opportunities that are being placed upon them and have embraced a variety of related approaches for response. Corporate social responsibility and related concepts such as corporate accountability, corporate sustainability, and corporate citizenship are being used to more effectively integrate the economic, environmental and social objectives of society into corporate structures and processes, more creatively innovate and bring value-added goods and services to solve societal demands, and more meaningfully collaborate and engage key stakeholders to improve public credibility and confidence.
After briefly presenting the business case for CSR , this site aims to generally describe some select achievements and accomplishments by industry at the levels of the individual company, industry sector, investment community, and cross-cutting industry organizations.
