Ceemet key messages

  • CSR should remain voluntary and business-driven practice. Ceemet fears that forcing to CSR will reduce creativity and companies’ and organisations’ own initiative. It will result in less enthusiastic initiatives in addition to possible financial burden that proper regulation would bring.
  • The Commission should continue to play an important role in CSR promotion, information sharing and benchmarking companies’ and organisations’ CSR initiatives. This will certainly lead to CSR becoming a natural part of these actors’ everyday business as it has widely happened already.
