Corporate Social Responsibility as a Driver of Sustainable Development
6 June 2019
16:45—18:00

Important conditions for successful economic development include motivated and responsible entrepreneurs. With the increasing global interdependence between companies and value chains in recent years, issues such as working conditions, the environment, human rights and corruption have become part of the political and social agenda. The role of corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the business environment is steadily growing today, providing various advantages irrespective of the size of the company and the sector in which it operates. CSR can help companies build a positive business reputation, increase customer loyalty, reduce costs, promote innovation and attract talent. How will business benefit from CSR strategies? How do companies achieve their sustainability goals and can they increase incentives for innovation? What role do new technologies play? How can the links between business activities and sustainable development be strengthened?
