Conference: Corporate Social Responsibility in China

January 14, 2015


The French Chamber of Commerce is delighted to invite you to the next Conference on the topic:

Corporate Social Responsibility in China

Over the years, CSR has become a key management issue worldwide, an increasingly debated topic in China. Many corporations have been trying to determine what they can do and should do to contribute to the sustainability of economics, social and ecological environment in which they operate. 

The exercise of CSR has become an internal driving force that helps executives to deliver better insights for tackling corporate and developmental challenges.

In the context of the sustainability imperatives promulgated in China’s latest 5-year plan, we will debate on perspectives offered by “CSR in China”.
