Globalization has intensified economic relations between European companies and developing countries. Global networking has opened up new and unprecedented perspectives. Companies are playing an increasingly important role for emerging and developing countries in both economic and social terms.
In a globalized world, the social responsibility of every company also has a global dimension. Every action, whether by an individual or a company, can have a global impact on people and the environment. That’s a big responsibility – and an even bigger opportunity.
Integrating social responsibility into one’s management strategy can be a challenge for any company – regardless of its size. The important thing is to take the first step. The corporAID platform supports companies in taking this first step and beyond – through information and networking.
