Canadian CSR Centre for Extractives Launched
Canadian CSR Centre for Extractive Sector Launched
Looking at the Canadian Government’s publication of its CSR Strategy for the Canadian International Extractive Sector,
No doubt that providing easy access to information, tools and network are important steps towards further improving the CSR performance. Operationalizing and mainstreaming good performance ‘on the ground’, such as emerging markets and post-conflict/failed states, will be what many stakeholders are looking for.
There seems to be always a challenge which comes with the title of ‘Center of Excellence’ - and who would prefer a more boring title like ‘Center of Mainstreaming’? Can such a Center effectively build bridges and cross the casm between ‘best CSR practices’ to reach and further improve the performance of the mainstream or even the laggards in the extractive sector?
What are your expectations and recommendations?
