Asian Forum on Corporate Social Responsibility Celebrates Its Tenth Year

MANILA, Aug 12, 2011 - (ACN Newswire) - The annual Asian Forum on Corporate Social Responsibility (AFCSR) celebrates its tenth year with its biggest conference yet as it returns to its home base in Manila, Philippines at the EDSA Shangri-la Hotel on October 18 and 19, 2011.

Organized by the Asian Institute of Management Ramon V. del Rosario Sr. Center for Corporate Responsibility (AIM-RVR Center), the AFCSR is recognized as the largest and most significant conference on corporate social responsibility in Asia. The event is supported and attended not only by senior business executives from Asia, but also by major non-government organizations throughout the region.

Global giants Intel and Nestle Philippines, Inc. have joined the conference as strategic partners and co-presenters. Over twenty-five companies have given their support as sponsors or conference partners, including platinum sponsors Manila Electric Company, Rapu-Rapu Minerals, Inc., and Sagittarius Mines, Inc.

This year's forum carries the theme, Strategic CSR: Creating Shared Value, and will be supported by a new framework which positions CSR within the companies' value chain in relation to the roles and responsibilities of both internal and external shareholders with regard to company CSR projects and programs.

Plenary and breakout discussions are expected to revolve around five core topics, namely: assessment and formulation of the firm and its "environment" culture; implementation focused on the advantages and disadvantages of sustaining CSR projects; monitoring and evaluation; embedding and encouraging CSR; and moving forward.

Launched 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.

Highlighting the two-day event is the Asian CSR Awards which recognize and honor companies in Asia for their projects and programs in corporate social responsibility. Awards will be given in four categories, namely: Health Enhancement, Environmental Excellence, Poverty Alleviation, and Education Improvement.
