Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) moves up to a higher level in the Philippines as the League of Corporate Foundations (LCF) begins preparations for the 10th annual CSR Expo to be held on July 20-21 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
This year’s theme”Taking CSR to New Heights,” will showcase the best and latest trends, practices, and models on CSR in this part of the world. From the official release of LCF, they announced that the two-day event will feature topics such as CSR’s crucial role in increasing business competitiveness, attracting and retaining talent, the various ways CSR is practiced within different organizations, and measuring and communicating CSR activities in the plenary and breakout sessions. There will be a discourse on current issues such as the proposed CSR legislation in the Philippines and whether the practice of CSR should be mandatory or voluntary.
