Awards as part of CSR activities

The global companies and domestic companies carry out their economic activities while interacting with their employees, customers, shareholders, and stakeholders in this era of globalization and the advancement of information technology. Under these circumstances, CSR is the corporate strategy to create value in response to various stakeholders’ expectations and requests and profit for the company.

CSR is called “corporate social responsibility” and is considered a separate corporate activity from business, and is regarded as a social contribution activity. Leading European companies understands CSR as the spiritual basis of the way companies should be. It refers to the concept of proactively incorporating social and environmental awareness into relationships “with management, employees, customers, and stakeholders to create common value and identify, prevent, and mitigate potential negative impacts on the company”.

The amount of investment in CSR by companies is increasing year by year. CSR is also used as a non-financial index for corporate evaluation and decision-making to invest by looking at the amount of investment in CSR and the content of activities. Companies that overlook CSR and pursue only their own profits will not be valued in today’s globalized economic system.

In the CSR support business operated by ADF, we will manage the award business as part of the CSR activities that companies are working on and support corporate CSR activities by holding global awards.
