Corporate Social Responsibility

CSR is the ability and willingness to take responsibility for internal and external corporate and community relations in the societies where you operate. By doing this through thorough feasibility studies prior to establishing business, companies show responsibility towards the countries they get involved in. Careful preparation ensures more stable, sustainable and long-term business operations. Thus, companies also contribute to a more predictable presence in the countries they emerge in.

International business in developing countries, raise issues that require particular CSR attention. Companies in these societies often encounter local populations that are very vulnerable due to poverty and food shortages, precarious environment and different types of social structures in which corruption is often very common. It is incumbent, therefore upon Norwegian businesses to show a special focus on corporate social responsibility when operating in developing countries.
