Corporate Social Responsibility Conference @ CARE HQ

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is here to stay. Consumers are shifting their purchasing habits and prefer to do business with corporations and brands featuring positive social messages, sustainable manufacturing methods, and ethical business standards.

Knowing this, how do businesses address this new consumer trend?

The “ethical” opportunity. Business leaders have started to view CSR as a way to strengthen their businesses and contribute to society simultaneously. Doing “good” looks good, right? With one caveat: the challenges that come with implementing the right CSR practices in business operations.

Join keynote speakers and panelists from diverse and global organizations as they share their hands-on experiences of the dos and don’ts of CSR practices.
