Study tour provides insight into corporate social responsibility

Vientiane Times 15 December 2015

A multi-stakeholder group led by the Ministry of Planning and Investment in collaboration with Mekong Region Land Governance, Village Focus International and the Land Issues Working Group, embarked on the inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility Study (CSR) Tour in southern Laos earlier this month. The main aim of the study tour was to deepen understanding of CSR practices in land-based investment in Laos, identify and document good practices that are replicable and can serve as a model for other companies. The group also aimed to learn about companies’ and government’s needs for guidance on implementing CSR practices. The study tour brought together a diverse group of participants from civil society organisations, government, private companies and financial institutions. The tour enabled them to better understand socially and environmentally responsible business practices in the land sector in Laos.
