In addition to target 4.7 that focuses at educational institutions and learners, target 12.8 addresses “all people”. That requires the establishment of CSR competence centres, mainstreaming of CSR & sustainability, and public communication.
In Austria, the leading platform is respact – austria business council for sustainable development. The organization currently has 300 members. In Croatia, we participate in two major centers for CSR education and development: Croatian Business Council for Sustainable Development, which gathers around 40 companies and institutions and the recently revived CSR Community with the Croatian Chamber of Economy, with over 50 members.
We support our clients through know-how transfer and training workshops, and we are active members in national and international CSR and sustainability communities. For several years, we have co-organized CSR conferences in Croatia and since 2018 we started own free workshops to increase sustainability know-how.
