The European Commission’s strategy on CSR 2011-2014: achievements, shortcomings and future challenges

Objective of the consultation

The aim of this public consultation is to seek feedback on the achievements, shortcomings and future challenges of the Commission’s activities on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), as outlined in the Commission’s 2011 Communication on “A renewed EU strategy 2011-14 for Corporate Social Responsibility” (COM(2011) 681 ).

The results of this public consultation will be summarised in a technical report and further inform the preparation of the plenary meeting of the multi-stakeholder forum on CSR, which is planned for February 2015. These two events will provide the most essential input for the Commission’s work on the direction of its CSR policy after 2014.
