Enterprise 2020 Summit with the participation of José Manuel Barroso


José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, participated in the 1st Enterprise 2020 Summit organised by CSR Europe. He made a speech entitled "Business and Policy Strategies Towards 2020: meeting the Challenge of Sustainable and Inclusive Growth" on this occasion. The President highlighted that corporate social responsibility was an inseparable part of rebuilding a globally competitive European economy on the basis of innovation, trust and European values.
He added that it was a mechanism for ensuring that the values of the EU were well defended in Europe and more broadly shared in other parts of the world. José Manuel Barroso then reminded that sustainable economic growth could be achieved among others through a responsible approach to business. He also insisted on the need of "inventive solutions" at a time when Europe faced major social challenges, such as high-levels of youth unemployment and ageing population, in particular because the budget 2014-2020 would be less than the EC would have hoped.
