The largest project on CSR ever attempted in Europe 2M Euros (incl. 1.1Million EU funding) 600 interviews in 40 multinational companies 4,000 managers surveyed About 1,000 managers involved in 8-10 training experiments Involving 18 academics + 5 Ph.D. students in 5 European (all EABIS members) and 2 US schools Actively supported by all the 5 EABIS business founders, plus IBLF and IISD Duration : 36 months, start 01/06/2004

3 Response objectives Study two fundamental questions: What do multinationals understand as their responsibilities towards society and how does that differ from what their stakeholders believe they should be? How do multinationals respond to societal demands? Understand how the answers to these questions vary across cultural, legal, industry and organizational contexts Identify and quantify the factors that contribute to explain why certain companies understand their stakeholders expectations better than others Test the effectiveness of different types of training approaches on the development of social consciousness in managers
