What is CSR?
Corporate sustainability consists of adopting a strategy that enables companies to achieve a balance between the environmental, economic, humanistic and social aspects. Therefore, it produces value by achieving corporate performance in the long term and should be an important part of firms’ actions and philosophy. Rationalizing the consumption of energy, water or reducing waste production for instance can lead to optimizing resources and decreasing the costs. Furthermore, companies that are recognized as practicing sustainability and CSR can open up to new markets create more value for their stakeholders, and recruit more talented employees.
