Corporate Social Responsibility

In October 2011 the European Commission published a new Communication on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

The Communication puts forward an agenda for action covering the period 2011-2014. In Action 1, the Commission undertook to “Create in 2013 multi-stakeholder CSR platforms in a number of relevant business sectors, for enterprises, their workers and other stakeholders to make public commitments on the CSR issues relevant to each sector and jointly monitor progress”.

Given the ever increasing role and importance of modern technologies, and the growing range of so far issue-specific groups and fora, DG CONNECT envisages establishing a specific multi-stakeholder CSR platform for the ICT sector.

The overall objective of the platform would be to encourage and enable European enterprises in the ICT sector across the EU to apply social corporate responsibility policies by taking a strategic approach to corporate cooperation in partnership with other relevant stakeholders (e.g. civil society, academia, public interest actors, NGOs, etc.), and by identifying good practices through which societal benefits can be delivered via the Internet and other ICT.

We would like to hear your views:

1) Do we need a single platform for CSR issues in the ICT sector, and  what priority topics should be addressed?

2) What should the general and specific goals of the platform be?

3) What should be the possible organisational arrangements for the platform (in particular, whether the secretariat should be provided by the Commission or by the stakeholders)?

4) Which tools/information should such a platform use/contain?

A warm welcome to everybody joining the group on Corporate Social Responsibility!
We would like to hear your thoughts on the creation of a multi-stakeholder platform on CSR for the ICT sector. Is there a need for one in the first place? What are the most important CSR issues in the ICT sector which need to be addressed?
