For both, enterprises and society as a whole, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) contributes to making the number of options grow. Creating options is considered as an important feature of sustainable development just as well as creating adaptive capacities (Holling 2001). Fostering enterprises’ and the society’s adaptive capacities to meet with disturbances also means to increase their resilience. Both, adaptive capacities and resilience, open up options for re-evaluating the current situation, triggering social mobilization, recombining sources of experience and knowledge for learning, and sparking novelty and innovation (Walker et al 2004).
This goes in line with the European Commission CSR strategy which highlights the benefits of CSR on the enterprise level with respect to “risk management, cost savings, access to capital, customer relationships, human resource management, and innovation capacity” (EC 2011).
Actually, a variety of options adds shared values concerning the economic, environmental, and social prosperities of society. Due to the close relationship of CSR, sustainable development, resilience, adaptive capacities, and the creation of new options we chose “CSR – Making the number of options grow!” to be the 2013 CRRC main motto.
CRRC is focusing on participants and the debate. Therefore we invite participants of different disciplinary backgrounds and research institutions, including national CSR practitioners. CRRC is the ideal place to test new ideas and to experiment with new formats. Therefore we also welcome suggestions for additional workshops and innovative settings. We aim to create an environment that is welcoming and friendly yet challenges the existing knowledge base and drives the debate around corporate responsibility forward.
