The strength of the European economy is built on a set of values that will lead to a sustainable economic system.
Aspired to these values, our member companies embrace corporate social responsibility as a pivotal contributor to the EU’s objectives of sustainable development and highly competitive social market economy.
We believe that fostering responsible business should be at the heart of the EU-Japan economic and political partnership.
Business responsibility and integrity should go beyond administrative functions, enhanced disclosure and improved reporting. It should be firmly embedded in companies’ mission, organisation and governance.
