Brief History About ASEAN CSR Fellowship
The Fellowship is part of ACN’s ongoing efforts to help practitioners re-define CSR, away from its misconception that it is just corporate philanthropy and volunteerism, towards the business responsibility to look beyond their bottom line and consider the social and environmental implications of their activities; in other words, responsible business practice. The attention is shifted from how businesses spend money (charity) to how the money is made.
