Max Oliva, Associate Director of IE’s Social Impact Management
The European Commission has just published (March 22nd, 2006) a communication on CSR entitled: “Implementing the Partnership for Growth and Jobs: Making Europe a pole of excellence on CSR”.
It is intended to be a backing for a European Alliance for CSR, intended to further promote and encourage CSR. They look at this not as a legal instrument, but rather as 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.

The commission will emphasize further promotion of CSR in 8 main areas:
• Awareness-raising and best practice exchange
• Support to multi-stakeholder initiatives
• Cooperation with Member States
• Consumer information and transparency
• Research
• Education
• Small and medium-sized enterprises
• The international dimension of CSR
