Government calls for renewed input on Corporate Responsibility

“Corporate responsibility is sometimes known as corporate social responsibility. It is defined as the responsibility of an organisation for the impacts of its decisions on society and the environment above and beyond its legal obligations, through transparent and ethical behaviour.”

This call for views seeks to gather your thoughts and ideas on aspects of corporate responsibility. It looks at what government, business and others should and could do in order to realise the full benefits that corporate responsibility can bring. It covers themes including:

  • voluntary reporting and disclosure of non-financial information
  • responsible supply chain management
  • corporate responsibility in small and medium sized enterprises

“Your comments will contribute to a framework for action on corporate responsibility. We intend to publish the framework by the end of 2013.”
