csrThe EU is developing a new policy on Corporate Social Responsibility.

The key issues were thrashed out at a large stakeholder conference in Brussels in February. Many think that it should be renamed 'Business and Human Rights'.

Also what to do when a third world state will not enforce the law? Remember the Rana Plaza textile factory disaster in Bangladesh? There are a lot of similar 'challenges' out there. 

 

Griffiths and Company provided a team of rapporteurs to summarise the conference debates and synthesise the good ideas for the new EU CSR policy.
