Thursday 10 March at 6.30pm
TALK by His Excellency Michel Doucin
Presentation in French – Q&A in French and in English
La responsabilité sociale des entreprises, sujet à la mode ou expression d’un besoin réel ?
From the United States to China and from Brazil to Norway, companies, foundations, multinationals, financial institutions and governments are calling for a charter to regulate the social practices with regard to the environment, social laws, human rights and the fight against corruption. Such a consensus is surprising in a world that is usually so divided on these topics. The French Ambassador charged with the social responsibility of enterprises (RSE), His Excellency Michel Doucin, will explore the sense, in reality the senses, plural, of the notion of social responsibility and will give examples from different continents, all the while underlining common ground: the largely shared view that these potentially destabilising economic powers have a huge role to play, to serve progress and the common good.
In collaboration with the Cultural Service of the French Embassy
