On Friday 27th October 2023, between 16:00 and 17:30 hrs, at the hall of the Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Victoria, Gozo, the Gozo Business Chamber in collaboration with Bank of Valletta, the Foundation Centesimus Annus Pro Pontifice, and the Diocese of Gozo is organising its third conference on Ethics in Business with the theme ‘Putting Corporate Social Responsibility into Practice’.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a much-discussed concept. Nonetheless the underlying motivations which should lead a business to do good within a community are very much debatable. If this is simply a profit driven, or a white-washing exercise to divert the spotlight from other activities which are causing more harm than good, then these activities are very much questionable within the context of the community in which they are being undertaken.
While this conference will seek to address the mutually important relationship between businesses and NGOs, it will also discuss on what should motivate actions under CSR, and how can these actions be structured in such a way as to have a positive impact on both businesses and NGOs.
