Multi-stakeholder Forum on Corporate social responsibility (CSR)
Corporate social responsibility is by definition is a multi-stakeholder concept. Facilitating dialogue between stakeholders is an important part of the Commission's policy on CSR.
What it does, how it works
The European Multistakeholder Forum on CSR provides a space for dialogue between European stakeholders about developments in CSR and European policy towards it.
The Forum is hosted and facilitated by the European Commission, in close cooperation with a Coordination Committee, in which business, trade unions, non-governmental organisations and other groups are represented (see list of members [22 KB] ). The European Commission hosts plenary meetings of the Forum approximately every 2 years.
The latest plenary meeting was held in November 2010.
The Forum was created in 2002, and in 2004 published a report [3 MB] concluding its first two years of work.
