ENTERPRISE 2020 Manifesto

CSR Europe – a network of more than 40 socially responsible national partner organizations and over 10,000 companies across Europe have presented the European Corporate Social Responsibility Manifesto, inviting companies and governments of European countries to ensure sustainable, moderate and inclusive growth. Responsible Business Forum as the national network partner in Serbia and as organization with many years of experience and expertise in the field of corporate social responsibility joined this initiative.

In response to the urgent need to address unemployment, climate change and demographic changes in Europe, the corporate social responsibility movement has developed the Enterprise 2020 Manifesto for action by 2020. 

The Manifesto calls on businesses and governments to work together and take action on three strategic priorities during the five years leading up to 2020:

  1. Make employabilityand inclusion a priority across boards, management and value chains.
  2. Stimulate companies to engage as committed partners with communities, cities and regions to develop and implement new sustainableproduction methods, consumption and livelihoods.
  3. Put transparencyand respect for human rights at the heart of business conduct.

The Manifesto is the corporate social responsibility movement’s response to the challenges set by the European Commission in the Europe 2020 strategy that calls for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

The progress of European businesses towards achieving the Manifesto’s priorities will be tracked over the coming five years via CSR Europe’s interactive online Business Impact Maps which will highlight hundreds of initiatives from across Europe.

CSR Europe is calling on governments and businesses across Europe to get on board and take action through their own initiatives.
