CSR - Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate social responsibility is defined as a form of self-regulation in terms of adherence and compliance with laws, international standards and ethical standards. The goal of CSR is for corporations to accept socially responsible behavior and incorporate it into their strategic plans, taking into account their employees, environment, suppliers, clients, local community, and other stakeholders relevant for the company.

Globally, there are a few bodies that govern corporate social responsibility. The largest network for corporate social responsibility is UN Global Compact. As one of their members, Ciklopea supports and promotes their 10 principles in its business operations. Aside from Global Compact, the other relevant body is the Global Reporting Initiative, which has created guidelines that serve as the basis for reporting on CRS. Furthermore, ISO 26000 represents a norm for social responsibility. Ciklopea has been a member of GRI and Global Compact since 2012.

Croatia has its own local subsidiary of the UN Global Compact network, as well as some other bodies that promote corporate social responsibility. The Industry Sector of the Croatian Chamber of Economy includes the CSR Association, which co-operates with the organization HR-PSOR on organizing an annual award ceremony for corporate social responsibility known as the SCR Index.
