CSR commitment

Corporate social responsibility is a "concept that refers to the voluntary integration by companies of concerns social and environmental to their business activities and their relationships with their stakeholders" (European Commission, 2002).

In other words, it refers to the actions taken by companies to have a positive impact on society, in environmental or ethical terms for example, while remaining economically viable. It concerns all companies, whatever their size, legal form or sector of activity. These companies are therefore committed to sustainable development in 3 areas: societal, social and environmental. To help them in their approach, guidelines are recommended by the international ISO 26000 label, which also assesses organizations' commitment to sustainable development, as well as their overall performance.
