How CSR is Integrated with Companies’ Strategy and Stakeholders
Customers, employees, suppliers and the society are placing greater importance on CSR. Corporate leaders have taken notice and do consider CSR initiatives to be key drivers to their overall strategies, allowing them to creatively address key business issues and bring benefit to the society at the same time.
The big challenge for executives is how to develop an approach that can truly deliver on these lofty ambitions—and, as of yet, few have found the way. In the Session B Industrial Track Panel Discussion, we invite innovative companies to share with you how they manage to overcome this hurdle, and create value for both the business and society simultaneously.
