The labour dimension of Corporate Social Responsibility
A new theme for the 2012 “Promoting Labour Standards through Corporate Social Responsibility: instruments and practices” training course, taking place at the International Training Centre of the ILO from 22 to 26 October 2012.
International Labour Standards (ILS) provide guidance and benchmarks not only for governments, employers’ and workers’ organisations, but also for companies involved in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
The training activity will look at the role of CSR in today's world of work and at the potential of private voluntary initiatives to contribute to compliance with and the promotion of ILS and the achievement of “decent work for all”. It will provide participants with a picture of current trends in and challenges to CSR, and an overview of international instruments and frameworks on CSR, such as the ILO Tripartite Declaration of Principles concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy, the Global Compact, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy and the Business and Human Rights Guiding Principles.
It will bring together representatives of governments, employers, workers, companies as well as ILO staff from all over the world.
