"Respect for applicable legislation, and for collective agreements between social partners, is a prerequisite for meeting the CSR objectives of our company" Small and Medium Enterprises may not know and use the term "CSR", but their close relations with employees, the local community and business partners often mean they have a naturally responsible approach to business. For most SMEs, the process by which they meet their social responsibility is likely to remain informal and intuitive.

Message from the chairman's desk
CSR is just normal everyday work, nothing exotic, nothing difficult, nothing costly, and nothing boring. Today ́s society and stakeholders just require more transparency, more information from the companies, so we have to start doing something we may not have done before, start using some new tools, some new performance indicators. This is everyday work in today ́s and tomorrow ́s world. This can be managed, this saves us money and this can be a true business case.
