CSR Europe is an international not-for-profit organisation under Belgian law (AISBL). It is a membership network with two types of members - corporate members and national partner organisations - who are represented in the organisation's governing bodies.
The General Assembly meets once a year to review CSR Europe's annual progress, approve the budget and financial results, and make decisions about the organisation's work. Every corporate member and national partner organisation has one representative on the General Assembly and is entitled to nominate candidates for the Board of Directors.
