Sep. 05 /CSRwire/ - September 5, 2007 -- CSRwire LLC, Inc. and Athens-based EuroCharity today announced the formation of a strategic international alliance.
EuroCharity, which, among other activities, owns and operates Greece's most comprehensive Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) directory ( www.eurocharity.org/en ), will promote CSRwire.com on its popular bi-lingual (Greek and English) portal and through numerous EuroCharity-backed or organised events in Greece and overseas.
In addition, EuroCharity will offer its local, regional and international members from both the business world and citizen sector the opportunity to become a member of CSRwire. These businesses and organisations will now be able to communicate their corporate social repsonsibility (CSR), sustainability, accountability and socially-responsible initiatives to a global audience through CSRwire's syndication network, news alerts, Web site, blogs, RSS Feeds, news aggregators, send-to-friend feature and search engines.
CSRwire will in turn pro-actively promote EuroCharity's activities, initiatives and events on CSRwire.com and to its members world-wide.
Commenting on this exciting new alliance, Peter Michel Heilmann, President, EuroCharity, said: "CSRwire and EuroCharity share common values, a common vision and, in some cases, common members and partners. Our new international alliance will be of tremendous benefit to the business world and citizen sector, both locally and globally, and we therefore very much look forward to working closely with CSRwire and to furthering our mission of making a world of difference."
Jack Wysocki, Global Outreach, CSRwire, said: "We are thrilled to expand our growing international network of partners with such a dynamic partner in South-East Europe. There are a great number of companies and organisations based in Greece that are active throughout the region and we are looking forward to helping them to promote their CSR initiatives."
Based in Athens, Greece, the cradle of Western civilisation and values, EuroCharity is a socially-responsive, values-based company that donates 25% of its annual membership revenues to charity. EuroCharity owns, operates and daily updates Greece's most comprehensive Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) directory in both Greek and English -- www.eurocharity.org/en. Its rapidly-growing Greek and international readership and membership includes a wide range of stakeholders.
As a environmentally-responsible business, EuroCharity plants trees in Greece and overseas (most recently in Dubai) and assists its members in addressing a number of environmental, social and ethical challenges in Greece and beyond. In addition, EuroCharity regularly sponsors, (co-)organises, promotes and/or speaks at local and international conferences, exhibitions, campaigns and citizen sector programmes and initiatives.
EuroCharity is a stakeholder and partner of the Centre for Sustainability and Excellence (CSE), a think tank with offices in Athens, Brussels and Dubai specialising in providing sustainable development solutions to corporations and institutions. EuroCharity also has partnered with Ethical Corporation, an independent, London-based publisher and conference organiser on how companies relate to the world around them.
EuroCharity is currently involved in the organisation of the "CEO & CSR: Mainstreaming Corporate Social Responsibility in Business Strategy"
Conference, to be held at the Hilton Athens on October 31, 2007. To be attended by business and citizen-sector leaders, the Conference will give a unique opportunity to its top-level participants to meet their industry peers, present their vision, mission, values and CSR programme, and engage in interactive discussions focusing on business strategy, CSR and sustainable development solutions for the 21st Century.
At EuroCharity, "making a world of difference" is not just a motto or mission, but deeply embedded in the DNA of our company, which is owned and run by a team of young, illuminary, values-based entrepreneurs from Greece and The Netherlands.
