Friday, February 19, 2010, 9:30 am until 6:00 pm, at the Japanese-German Center Berlin (JDZB).
The conference at the JDZB is about effects of the worldwide economic crisis on CSR strategies in Japan and Germany. Among others Jan Jonker (Nijmegen School of Management) and TANOMOTO Kanji (Hitotsubashi University, Tôkyô) as well as Managers from Fujifilm and PricewaterhouseCoopers AG will participate in the conference. The participants from economy and science will discuss two key aspects:
- What is the importance of CSR rankings and ratings? What are the differences of CSR concepts in Germany and Japan and in the United States and Britain?
- What are the effects of the economic crisis on CSR activities and policies? What are the challenges?
Corporate Social Responsibility has become a major aspect of corporate strategic planning and corporate policy in recent years due to economic globalization. Although CSR concepts are applied internationally by companies, the focus in research is still on European countries, the USA and the United Kingdom. East Asian countries, particularly Japan, play with their strongly export-driven companies an important role in the globalized world economy, but they have not been included into research about social and environmental commitment.
The conference will be held in English and is organized in cooperation with the Institute of East Asian Affairs of the Berlin Free University.
