Awareness about corporate social responsibility (CSR) in Singapore and the ASEAN region has been growing over the past decade, a trend that is expected to continue. In spite of this, many businesses in the region still find it an uphill task to actively embed CSR into their business strategies, preferring to invest in the social development and philanthropic aspects of CSR.
This is the inspiration behind the theme for this year’s International Singapore Compact CSR Summit, “CSR: For Sustainable Growth. Balancing Profits, People and Planet”. Taking place at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre on 16 and 17 October 2014, this year’s 2-day conference provides a platform for major CSR players to discuss how companies can maintain sustainable growth through responsible business actions.
