A unique opportunity to shape the development of CSR in Europe
The first ever pan-European Award Scheme to inspire CSR excellence in multistakeholder projects was successfully launched in 2012. Now, in Spring 2013, European countries celebrate first winning partnerships and are getting ready for the European Award Ceremony in Brussels.
The ceremony will take place on 25 June in Brussels and will showcase more than 60 national winners in two categories – SME and large company. This event will mark a next stage of the project – replicating the best practices of innovative impactful partnerships.
This exciting and pioneering initiative focuses on successful partnerships between business and non-business organisations, with particular emphasis on collaborative programmes that tackle sustainability through innovation.
The European CSR Award Scheme was initiated and is funded by the European Commission. It is delivered by the consortium of 29 National CSR organisations and is co-led by CSR Europe and Business in the Community with the support of Alliance Boots.
The overall aim of the Award Scheme is to:
- Give higher visibility to CSR excellence and raise global awareness on the positive impact that business can have on society
- Bringing the best European CSR multistakeholder projects into focus
- Enhance the exchange of CSR best practice across Europe
- Encourage CSR collaboration between enterprises and stakeholders
- Create innovative solutions to tackle sustainability issues
Funded and initiated by the European Commission and coordinated by CSR Europe and Business in the Community with the support of Alliance Boots. The Awards Scheme is delivered by a consortium of 29 National CSR organisations to deliver the European CSR Award Scheme for Partnership, innovation and impact.
"This new award scheme will highlight the cutting-edge excellence of European enterprises in corporate social responsibility. It will give greater exposure to some of the hidden champions, especially smaller enterprises, who engage in innovative partnerships to maximise their positive impacts on society. Corporate social responsibility is part of the formula for a competitive, innovative and socially inclusive Europe."
Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the European Commission
