During the renewal of our corporate social and environmental responsibility (CSR) certification in May 2021, we met with Ms. Cintia Procaci, an external auditor of the certification body and founder of the consulting agency A Beautiful Green.
Her sound advice and constructive comments inspired us to work with her to organise a workshop with the entire CSR committee. The chosen theme for this work session was: “Sustainable development in business”.
Throughout the morning, the participants learned about the challenges of sustainable development, and discovered or rediscovered the “17 Sustainable Development Goals” (SDGs) defined by the United Nations (UN) to meet these challenges between now and 2030.
The workshop was divided into two parts. First, a theoretical presentation, offering a review of the key concepts involved, with concrete cases and examples of good practices.
This was followed by a creative activity session in which the participants came up with their own ideas for our company, based on the SDGs.
The workshop brought home the importance of a CSR strategy, in its social as well as environmental aspects, and also helped build a constructive dialogue on CSR projects for future development.
