Here are some more details. The EC Commission has recently published yet another Communication on corporate social responsibility. Its title is the hopeful sounding “Implementing the Partnership for Growth and Jobs: Making Europe a pole of excellence on CSR”.
According to the Commission's corporate social responsibility web page:
"In this communication, the Commission announces backing for a European Alliance for CSR. This is an open alliance of European enterprises to further promote and encourage CSR. The alliance is a political umbrella for CSR initiatives by large companies, small and medium-sized enterprises, and their stakeholders. It is not a legal instrument to be signed by enterprises, but rather a vehicle for mobilising the resources and capacities of European enterprises and their stakeholders in the interests of sustainable development, economic growth and job creation."Whatever that means.
