What is CSR

CSR is a business opportunity that allows companies to improve their corporate reputation and to establish, develop and enhance their market share.

The great majority of multinational companies today recognise the public demand for accountability for the social and environmental impact of the company. They can learn to see the economic benefit of extending their scope from short term profit, to long term sustainable growth. CSR training is in high demand.
