Global CSR Summit 2011 Philippines

Ethical Markets is a media partner with the Global CSR Summit 2011, being held in Cebu City, Philippines, August 11-12. Asia’s most prestigious event on corporate social responsibility, The Global CSR Summit & The Global CSR Awards are in their third successive year.

This year, the conference examines the issues of sustainability for businesses in Asia for the 21st century amidst weaknesses in the global economy, environmental disasters, political instability in the middle east and the global food crisis.

The theme of the event “Beyond Sustainability” highlights the future directions of CSR. It involves going beyond narrow concepts of sustainability that aim at “minimizing” environmental harm and maintaining the status quo and toward a new paradigm of embracing innovative and cutting edge solutions that contribute beneficially to profits, societies and the environment.

The 2 day event will consist of presentations from industry leaders, an awards luncheon ceremony, a practical workshop and a site tour around Cebu.
