CSR Europe

"Enterprise 2020 is your opportunity to create shared value for your business and society."

Stefan Crets

Executive Director, CSR Europe

Enterprise 2020 is CSR Europe's ambitious initiative to address the European and global challenges which are increasingly bringing into question our current patterns of living, working, learning, communicating, consuming and sharing resources. Today's companies must develop their business strategies based on an understanding of how the world will look in the future. Through Enterprise 2020, CSR Europe aims to provide value added services to members that will allow for continuous improvement and transition to a sustainable economy.

Global  trends  such  as  increasing  globalization,  poverty,  natural  resource  scarcity,  urbanization, environmental degradation and demographic change are continuously bringing into question our current patterns of living. Enterprise 2020 calls on companies to minimize risks through accountability and transparency, while creating value that contributes to economic, societal and environmental progress.

Strengthening European and International Partnerships

The Dialogue and cooperation between the European Commission and the network of CSR Europe have constituted a solid basis for advancing CSR in Europe since the early 1990s. In the context of the EU's new Europe 2020 strategy, Enterprise 2020  provides  the foundation  for  a renewed  partnership between  business  and  the  European Commission,  Council and Parliament. It supports the Commission's goal of "making Europe a pole of excellence on CSR" and promoting CSR as part of the European strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. EU commission writes: "CSR Europe's  Enterprise  2020  initiative  is  an  example  of business  leadership  in  the  field  of  CSR  that  is  particularly relevant to EU policy objectives. The Commission will help to review the initial results of this initiative, and to define its next steps." CSR Europe welcomes the support of the European Commission to strengthen the Enterprise 2020 initiative - no single company, policymaker or organization can successfully work in isolation to address today's complex social and environmental challenges.
