This report by the Foundation is based on a synthesis of two studies that were conducted into corporate social responsibility within the areas of living and working conditions. The first study aimed to investigate and describe corporate policies designed to instigate social responsibility in the field of working conditions and employment. Two specific issues highlighted in the study were restructuring and subcontracting. The second study aimed to develop two of the post-Lisbon priorities: corporate involvement in local community and economic regeneration; and the promotion of environmentally acceptable practices. The report concludes that CSR is a process rather than a product. It outlines the various approaches to CSR, examples of good practice, and suggests recommended actions to reinforce CSR.
