Integration of CSR in government strategies: aligning CSR strategies with wider public policy objectives


UNIDO supports governments in the development of national CSR strategies and policies, which would have a valuable spill-over effect on the economy and contribute towards the reduction of poverty.  

One of the first steps in this process focuses on assessing government strategies in more depth, in fields concerning poverty reduction, employment creation, community engagement, good governance, gender issues, natural resource management, environmental protection, youth employment, corruption, etc. Through this assessment UNIDO explores to what extend the encouragement of socially and environmentally responsible business practices in the private sector could make a contribution to the achievement of the goals envisaged in those strategies.
