SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Oct. 27 /CSRwire/ - CSRwire, the Corporate Social Responsibility Newswire has joined forces with Caux Round Table to communicate the importance of Corporate Social Responsibility and sustainability news. As part of their partnership agreement, Caux Round Table will now be helping to increase the exposure of Corporate Social Responsibility news by running CSRwire's Press Releases, Events, and Reports on their website, now viewable here.
The Caux Round Table was founded in 1986 by Frederick Phillips, former President of Philips Electronics and Olivier Giscard d'Estaing, former Vice-Chairman of INSEAD, as a means of reducing escalating trade tensions.
At the urging of Ryuzaburo Kaku, then Chairman of Canon, Inc., the CRT began focusing attention on the importance of global corporate responsibility in reducing social and economic threats to world peace and stability.
The CRT Principles for Business were formally launched in 1994, and presented at the United Nations World Summit on Social Development in 1995. The CRT Principles for Business articulate a comprehensive set of ethical norms for businesses operating internationally or across multiple cultures. The CRT Principles for Business emerged from a series of dialogues catalyzed by the Caux Round Table during the late 1980's and early 1990's. They are the product of collaboration between executives from Europe, Japan, and the United States, and were fashioned in part from a document called "The Minnesota Principles." The CRT Principles for Business have been published in twelve languages, reprinted in numerous textbooks and articles, and utilized in business school curricula worldwide. The Principles are recognized by many as the most comprehensive statement of responsible business practice ever formulated by business leaders for business leaders, and are the only global ethical principles for business crafted by business leaders from their experiences. They also reflect the ethical traditions of 11 important world religions. The CRT has enhanced the effectiveness of its Principles for Business with advocacy of parallel ethical principles for government, NGOs and the ownership of wealth.
