European Chamber of Commerce Nanjing Chapter: Promoting the Value of Corporate Social Responsibility

Nanjing, November 22, 2019 - The 6th European Union Chamber of Commerce Corporate Social Responsibility Awards was held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Nanjing. The event aims to showcase the best practices of corporate social responsibility, to share the innovative ways of CSR practice, to acknowledge CSR success stories, to raise sustainability awareness, and to share the CSR experiences with organizations looking to promote and exercise corporate responsibility in China. More than 100 representatives from enterprise, NGO/social organization, government, media, and schools attended the meeting.

The European Chamber has always been committed to promoting corporate social responsibility value. The CSR Forum has been operating successfully in China for 10 years, and the CSR Awards have entered their sixth year. The Awards actively promote best practices from the EU in this field, emphasizing the strategic and innovative approach to corporate social responsibility, with different awards for multinational enterprises (MNC), small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) and non-governmental organizations (NGO).

This year’s event focused on the theme: "Reconciling Business, Environment and Society: What role can Europe and China organizations play?" Mr. Bernhard Weber, Chairman of the European Chamber Nanjing Board said: "The Corporate Social Responsibility Award has entered its fifth year, and this year's activities have reached a new height. Corporate social responsibility has long been a topic of great concern to EU enterprises. We hope to take this opportunity to share the practices and experience of CSR between China and foreign countries, to understand the latest strategies and innovative trends in the industry, so as to better practice CSR and promote shared value.
