Canada: Conference board announces national CSR report
Date: 17 Jul 2003
The Conference Board of Canada has launched the development of a new annual publication, the National Corporate Social Responsibility Report, promising that it will be "a single comprehensive source of information on the state of corporate social responsibility in Canada".
"CSR is an urgent social and political issue. It matters to the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors," said Mark Schacter, Director of Governance and CSR. "This report, which will be Canada's only basic reference tool on the state of CSR, will provide a sound basis for the development of CSR strategies and policies. It will also contribute to a fruitful public debate on the role of corporations in society."
The Conference Board said that the report would cover trends and practices in CSR in Canada and internationally.
