Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainability

In the last days I started to think on the possible relation of management type of multinational companies and the presence or lack of CSR programs. As a supposition: multinational companies with a Russian or Ukrainian, and other former soviet countries origin are less familiar with the idea of social responsibility, than multinationals from West Europe. What do you think about this?

I also would like to address a few questions to those who live in a country, where the reporting of social responsibility activity is obligatory (as I know in France and Australia): how it happens this in practice? Which are key elements of the reporting?

Public companies in the UK have been obligated to report on corporate responsibility and people issues in their annual reports since 2006. Take a look at some research my company has done on this to see which companies are doing this kind of thing well in the UK:

(then visit Best Practice and look at the sections on Relationships and Responsibility, and Employees.)

Hello Daniel,

Buenos Aires city has passed a similar law last year. Companies located on the city with more than 300 employees have to develop a CSR report with indicators from Ethos (Brazil), AA1000 and GRI. It is still soon to know how this law impacts the CSR environment but I'm sure it will be interesting to see it.

At the national level, Argentinian Senate is debating a CSR law as well.

I hope you are ok.
Paula
