Corporate social responsibility
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is enjoying increasing popularity and has become a top management focus area. While large companies are obliged to draft CSR reports, many smaller businesses voluntarily commit to this, for example, by signing the UN Global Compact.
Moreover, increased trade and engagement with new countries, subcontractors and collaborative partners that employ less stringent production standards have resulted in a growing focus on employee rights, corruption, environmental issues and risk management.
