Corporate Social Responsibility: a new CSR guide is available

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) plays a key role in the development of a sustainable economy as it takes into account several aspects of the company, i.e.:

  • environmental protection aspects; and
  • economic and social aspects, which concern in particular the well-being and safety of employees.

CSR is the application of sustainable development principles by businesses and aims at establishing a link between the corporate world and the society.

To businesses, becoming socially responsible means integrating social and environmental issues into their day-to-day management and interactions with third parties.

To prepare companies for greater resilience and management of societal and environmental expectations, a guide has been developed in collaboration with the main national CSR stakeholders: the "Guide ESR - Entreprise responsable" (CSR guide - Responsible business) of the National Institute for Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility (INDR).

The guide:

  • identifies the main expectations that the society in the 21st century has of companies;
  • gives an overview of the relevant CSR themes;
  • explains through practical fact sheets how a company can contribute to sustainable development;
  • accompanies businesses in the concrete implementation of CSR.

You will find detailed explanations on CSR in our information page as well as free access to the CSR guide on www.esr.lu.
