2. BEST PRACTICE EXCHANGE AND TOOL DEVELOPMENT
CSR Europe, together with its corporate members and national partner organizations (NPOs), provides a platform for connecting members to share best practices, foster learning, exchange of information and the opportunity to jointly work on practical and collaborative solutions.
As a member company, you are welcome and invited to participate in:
Online best practice and solutions database: Provides a unique collection of CSR best practice examples, gathered in the following areas: organizational accountability, environment, human rights and labour practices.
Collaborative projects: under the umbrella of Enterprise 2020 CSR Europe also manages collaborative projects gathering companies, national partner organizations and other experts or key stakeholders with the aim of developing practical CSR tools and thought leadership. For the period 2011-2013, CSR Europe is driving six collaborative projects. Additionally, other projects are driven directly by some of CSR Europe members.
CSR Europe marketplace event: Organised by CSR Europe every second year in average, these European wide marketplaces serve as innovative forum where companies and stakeholders have the opportunity to network, share experiences with peers and present their CSR solutions in an informal and creative environment. At the last marketplace, held on October 28th 2010 in Brussels, CSR Europe launched its new Enterprise 2020 initiative. The best practice examples collected at each marketplace are gathered in our online best practice and solutions database.
NPO meetings and webinars: CSR Europe’s National Partners Organisations network organises regular network meetings to share experience and develop joint projects based on different perspectives and areas of expertise. The meetings are taking place twice a year, jointly hosted by CSR Europe and National Partners. Further information about NPO Network: http://www.csreurope.org/pages/en/networkactivities.html
