Final Report - R.A.R.E. (Rhetorics and realities - analysing corporate social responsibility in Europe)

Project ID: 506043
Funded under: FP6-CITIZENS

Abstract

This is the final report of the RARE project, which was funded under the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). Its overarching goal was to evaluate and explain impacts of 'corporate social responsibility' (CSR) on sustainability. The researchers were specifically interested in the extent to which CSR impacts contribute to the achievement of sustainability goals set by the European Union. The focus was on CSR impacts created within Europe rather than in developing countries.

The report begins with some background on CSR in the European Union and states the project's objectives. It later explains the approach followed by the researchers and finally sums up the results.
