IMPACT: Europe-wide Delphi study invites experts from five sectors

10.07.2012

The Oeko-Institut and its partners in the Project IMPACT seek voluntary experts to participate in a survey on corporate responsibility.

Under the scope: Corporate responsibility

The project "IMPACT - Impact Measurement and Performance Analysis of CSR", which is led by Oeko-Institut is the largest project focusing on Corporate Social Responsibility ever funded by the European Commission. The goal of the project is to investigate the CSR impacts on environmental, quality-of-jobs and economic issues in Europe. The geographical scope of the project are EU-member countries, and we are targeting the most important sectors in Europe: automotive, construction, ICT, retail and textile.

Currently we are conducting research exploring:

  • the impacts of voluntary activities undertaken by companies,
  • the importance of policy instrument motivating companies for responsible business conduct and the role of these instruments in fostering CSR impacts, and
  • future trends in the sector and their potential relation with CSR.
