MANILA, Philippines : Business leaders launched the 10th Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Expo aimed to promote social development in the communities.

Industry leaders saidCSR Expo-1 CSR has evolved through the years and is ingrained in the culture of many businesses in the Philippines. The launch was held at the Ayala Center in Makati City.

Recognizing that CSR has changed the way businesses are run, the League of Corporate Foundations adopts the theme “Taking CSR to new heights” for its annual CSR Expo, in part to address the changing environment of CSR, and in part to challenge its members and the general public to take a second look at CSR and how it affects society.

The  (LCF) is an association of more than 70 corporations and corporate foundations that supports and promotes the CSR practices of its members. The foundation has played a crucial role in developing CSR in the country and in raising public consciousness on the importance of participating in various CSR activities that benefit not just the environment, but also various beneficiaries, and even the businesses and the individuals themselves.

Ed Amistad, League of Corporate Foundations chairman, said “CSR has evolved into a movement beyond philanthropy—more than giving, it has become a platform for empowering beneficiaries into making a difference in the community.”

“This made CSR a tangible and measurable endeavour. Thus, our challenge is to take it to another level—of reach, participation, and goals,” he said.

LCF’s 10 CSR Expo is scheduled on July 20 and 21 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.

Aside from the knowledge sharing of the best and latest CSR trends, models and practices, the two-day forum will also have discussions on current issues concerning CSR, lectures on how CSR practitioners can improve their craft, as well as free CSR 101 lectures for students, and an exhibit open to the public.
