Corporate social responsibility

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) stands for a corporate strategy in which the benefits for business and the benefits for society are not mutually exclusive but are complementary and mutually supportive. This means entrepreneurship which balances economic, environmental and social corporate goals on the basis of a social dialogue.

You can find information on CSR in NRW on these pages. We also present companies and entrepreneurs who stand for CSR with their exemplary approach. Companies which are interested in emulating them are able to find the appropriate contact partners in the CSR Competence Centres. The state government is supporting these regional networks as part of its CSR strategy for NRW.
