Singapore, CSR is calling.. are you there?

The Singapore Compact is calling the community of regional business leaders.  As the national society with an aim to bring the CSR movement forward in Singapore The Singapore Compact for CSR is waiting for an answer.  They are calling business leaders to their most recent educational conference which will bring influential speakers and relevant content to Singapore next week as part of the Corporate Social Responsibility Summit. csr_summit_2009_title

Our company, MCI Group, is providing organizational support.  Part of this will be a an assessment of the sustainable practices associated with the planning and delivery of the event itself.  Although early response from event suppliers has revealed that basic sustainable practices have not yet been adopted by many respected local businesses, it’s clear that the resources available to them are many.  Singapore has an aggressive effort to promote recycling, reduce water use and to invest in community development projects.  Leadership from organizations like the Singapore Compact are important components for the integration of responsible practices within communities.  What’s needed is business participation and, yes,  activation.  The business community stand to benefit most from fully integrated Corporate Social Responsibility plans,.  Here’s hoping they’ll answer the call.
