New publication “CSR and the Sustainable Development Goals”
An article titled “Exploring the interface of CSR and the Sustainable Development Goals”, authored by Norma Schönherr, Florian Findler and André Martinuzzi has been published in an UNCTAD journal “Transnational Coorporations”. This article explores how the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a global agenda may serve as a reference framework that can support TNCs in improving their corporate social responsibility (CSR) engagement in a way that contributes to sustainable development. The authors specifically consider the role of systematically measuring and managing corporate impacts on sustainable development as a prerequisite for demonstrating a net contribution to the SDGs. In order to capture these impacts, existing corporate measurement and evaluation systems need to be adapted and new management instruments have to be developed.
