MANILA, Sept 6, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - The annual AIM Asian Forum on Corporate Social Responsibility (AFCSR) enters its second decade with its biggest conference yet as it travels to Thailand to hold the 11th AFCSR at the Bangkok Shangri-La Hotel on October 25 and 26, 2012.
Organized by the Asian Institute of Management Ramon V. del Rosario Sr. Center for Corporate Responsibility (AIM-RVR Center), the AFCSR is known to be the most significant conference on corporate social responsibility in Asia. The event is attended by various professionals -- senior business executives, academicians, civil society as well as government organizations.
This year's conference offers productive and informative sessions and topics stemming from the theme, Innovative Approaches To Creating Value for Business and Society, and will be supported by a framework that showcases the creation of innovative CSR programs while generating stakeholder engagement. Plenary and breakout discussions will revolve around five core topics, namely: assessment of the firm's culture; development of the program; prototyping and evaluating; systematizing and implementation; and finally, embedding and encouraging CSR.
Introduced in Manila in 2002, AFCSR's mission is to highlight innovative programs and best practices in CSR by corporations in Asia and to promote CSR as a key strategy in addressing public needs and problems, to showcase corporate standards on CSR as strategy, and to build a network of CSR practitioners across Asia.
Capping off the two-day event is the Asian CSR Awards and the Intel-AIM Corporate Responsibility Award ceremonies and gala dinner, which seeks to recognize companies in Asia for their projects and programs on CSR. The Asian CSR Awards will be given in four categories, namely: Environment and Value-Chain Management, Governance and Society, Labor and Employee Engagement, and Product Responsibility and Consumer Rights while the IACRA will go to an organization that has fully embedded CSR throughout the aforementioned focus areas.
