DoK group called RESP:ON started with their activities at the beginning of the year 2015. Its main aim is to raise awareness among company employees about the fact that corporate social responsibility activities should not be only about philanthropy, but most importantly trying to change company’s core business to be done in a responsible way. Companies should embed sustainability into their core business operations to create shared value for business and society (“win-win”).
We are working on two initiatives:
Environmental – we would like to initiate use of reusable cups instead of current plastic cups for just one usage at Náplavka and other places in Prague. We are preparing an exhibition to raise public awareness about sustainability topics.
Social – we are working on a web page with the purpose of connecting small and medium businesses with projects of non-profit organizations and helping companies to start/ improve their corporate responsibility.
If you are interested and would like to join the group or get some more information about our activities (debates, workshops, etc.), please contact Project Coordinator, Markéta Svobodová.
