Corporate social responsibility (CSR) as a business lingo first came into popular usage in the 1960s and 70s. Fast forward to today, CSR has been embraced by corporations large and small the world over.
Recognising the importance of CSR to companies in China, the Tanoto Foundation has launched a series of CSR lectures to advance the conversation, with the inaugural Tanoto Foundation CSR lecture taking place at the Nanjing Forestry University on November 19, 2016.
In 2015, Tanoto Foundation was assigned by the Jakarta Provincial Government as the development agent for government-owned PAUD located in an area for lower income community members. Find out how that uplifted the community at http://ow.ly/Gs1q3068fSK
“In developing countries, business accounts for 60% of GDP and 90% of jobs, so the kind of change envisaged by the SDGs can only be achieved with the input of the private sector,” declared Haoliang Xu, UN Assistant Secretary-General & Director for Asia-Pacific, UNDP; setting an important context for the Responsible Business Forum on Sustainable Development 2016 held in Singapore from Nov 22-24 at the Marina Bay Sands.
