Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is widely recognised as a worthy commitment to ensure sustainable benefit for both corporations and society. In the last couple of years, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Environment Social and Governance (ESG) have emerged as major factors affecting decision making and driving companies’ efforts to “do the right thing”.
The Sustainability and Social Responsibility Committee brings EBC members together in efforts concerning Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Environment Social and Governance (ESG) and overall sustainability.
- Share and promote best practices (policies, NPOs to support, successful activities and initiatives);
- Understand how CSR, SDG and ESG can improve both external relationships with society as whole, but also how it can improve employee satisfaction which will also be a factor when recruiting top talents;
- Offer opportunities for member companies to join force on common projects, events and volunteering opportunities for employee engagement – with the goal of having a greater impact;
- Have a positive impact on the state of corporate social responsibility and sustainability within the EBC community and the larger Japanese society. (Through visibility of actions, engaging with stakeholders and, where relevant, advocacy).
