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 pdf - 22 KB [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 Coordination Committee is closely involved in new initiatives on business and human rights and on reporting and disclosure.

The Forum was created in 2002, and in 2004 published a report pdf - 3 MB [3 MB] concluding its first two years of work.
