Globalization has intensified economic relations between European companies and developing countries. Global networking has opened new and unprecedented perspectives. Businesses are playing an increasingly important role, both economically and socially, for emerging and developing economies.
In a globalized world, the social responsibility of every company also has a global dimension. Any action, whether by a person or by a company, can affect people and the environment worldwide. That's a big responsibility - and an even bigger chance.
