Dalla pagina della D.G. Impresa ed Industria della Commissione europea, da cui è possibile scaricare il rapporto Concorrenza 2008 con i riferimenti alla tematica della responsabilità sociale.
The European Commission sees Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as part of the business contribution to sustainable development and to the European Growth and Jobs Strategy. We believe that CSR has the potential to contribute to various common goals, such as social cohesion, economic competitiveness and a more rational use of natural resources.
In the Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry we have a particular interest in knowing more about the links between CSR and competitiveness. These links might exist at a micro-level (individual enterprises), and also at a systemic level (sectors and regional/national economies).
