Funded by the European Commission’s “Progress” programme, this project analyses the impact of a variety of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) tools used on the pan-European level aiming at the implementation of fair working conditions, human rights and social standards.
The results are summarised and published in the LARRGE Guide, that gives companies of any size and business sector a sound overview and helps to identify which CSR tool fits their needs best. To guarantee easy access and usability, the LARRGE Guide will be available online at www.larrge.eu as of spring 2010.
In the course of the project, great emphasis is put on the practical aspects of CSR tools. Therefore, the engagement of all stakeholders is of particular importance as to learn their experiences with the creation, implementation and application of these instruments. A two-day working conference and a wide-spread online questionnaire aim to ensure this holistic approach. Likewise, the LARRGE project´s website offers the possibility for ongoing dialog and feedback between CSR tool developers, companies, employees’ representations and civil society actors to guarantee an intensive and sustainable exchange.
