Corporate responsibility is company-level action that takes place in accordance with good employership, human rights and sustainable development and that transcends legislation. In commerce, responsibility is linked to everyday work and action.
Commerce wants to promote sustainable everyday life. As the biggest employer in the economy, commerce recognises its own significance in ensuring the well-being and safety of personnel. Climate change and environmental awareness affect consumers’ attitudes and choices and challenge commerce to act more responsibly. Alongside reducing its environmental impact, commerce is also developing monitoring related to production and the treatment of workers in risk countries.
Commerce has already done a lot of good under the heading of responsibility; according to research, it is seen as the most responsible of all branches of business. It is a pioneer in energy efficiency, recycling, waste prevention and youth employment.
