Many of today’s major social problems such as those caused by climate change, poverty or HIV/AIDS cannot be solved in the political sphere alone; the active involvement of companies and civil society is needed too.
A hitherto unique study by the Bertelsmann Stiftung and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) entitled “The CSR Navigator – Public Policies in Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe” looks at how governments help companies meet their social responsibilities and involve them usefully in solving complex problems.
Special attention must be paid to effective cooperation between government, industry and civil society. The study also demonstrates that by adopting a cooperative political style, governments can help make globalisation fair.
The study focuses on selected industrialised, emerging and developing countries, namely Brazil, China, Egypt, France, Germany, India, Mozambique, Poland, South Africa, Sweden, United Kingdom, USA and Viet Nam.
The study was officially presented on 22 October 2007 in Berlin
