>Collecting, analysing and advertising information, documents and studies relevant to corporate social responsibility and to socially responsible investment in France and foreign countries.

Key Issues
The main CSR challenges in France are threefold:

- to find ways and tools to mainstreaming CSR amongst SMEs which still need to understand how to define CSR strategies and what they would gain from CSR.
- to involve everyone at each stage of the company (employees, managers, members of the board) and companies not matter of the size.
- to develop a holistic approach of CSR within the company (HR, environment, society issues) & global/ local strategies.
