What is CSR?
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is an integral vision of sustainable business practices. CSR Netherlands’ approach to CSR is based on the European Commission’s definition: corporate social responsibility refers to companies taking responsibility for their impact on society.
Companies that engage in socially responsible enterprise consider the social and economic impact of all their decisions, while taking account of the interests of their stakeholders (interested parties). These stakeholders can include employees and clients, or parties such as local residents, suppliers, investors and even society at large.
It is important for companies to engage in discussion with their stakeholders. This is how they learn about how their decisions affect others. It is also important for companies to be transparent about their activities and the social impact of those activities.
