Objectifs pédagogiques

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the framework by which companies are required to voluntarily contribute to Sustainable Development and to find powerful levers of competitiveness.
The course aims to provide a solid conceptual base on Social Corporate Responsibility (CSR). Study cases provide the students with key elements of know-how for CSR implementation in a complex and changing web of business systems. It allows grasping relations between CSR and various areas of the economic reality.
The course uses the standard ISO 26000 as a guiding principle in this course. It provides an overview over the 7 areas of responsibility: Governance, Human Rights, Social relations and working conditions, Environment, Fair operating practices, Consumers issues, Communities and development. It will focus on Environment and Human Rights, which currently get a great attention. 
The course also considers dialogue with stakeholders, one of the two central practices of Social Responsibility.
