A tool for responsible business practice among SMEs- The Online Roadmap for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)



About the CSR Online Roadmap

The Online CSR Roadmap is a user-friendly online tool to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) in developing a CSR action plan.
