CSR 16 WEB BANNERS 880X270

The American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with its Corporate Social Responsibility Committee, held its 14th annual Corporate Social Responsibility conference, REDEFINING THE CSR VISION: INNOVATE, CIRCULATE, ENGAGE, on November 3, 2016 at the Benaki Museum

As businesses today are exposed to multiple economic, environmental and social changes that create both risks and opportunities in search for sustainable growth, the design and introduction of sustainable products, services, and business models are needed to achieve business success. This begins with redefining and realigning the CSR Vision with a clear focus on substance, in line with the global trend of sustainability. The conference, attended by 260 delegates, provided a platform for delegates to hear insights from prominent speakers and learn about new opportunities to develop more meaningful corporate social responsibility practices in fostering a culture of corporate sustainability leading to a more sustainable future.

Our successful innovation, the CSR Marketplace showcased innovative best practices, encouraged more interaction, dialogue, and sharing among conference participants. The exhibitors included: 3M, AB Vassilopoulos, Alpha Bank, Athens International Airport, Diageo, EY, Interamerican, Vodafone.
