Senior representatives of Chinese state-owned enterprises will in mid-October study how Swedish companies are integrating a sustainable approach to their business strategies and daily management in a training programme largely placed in Sweden.
"We feel privileged to have such a good cooperation with our Chinese counterparts. The training provides a unique opportunity for Sweden to share successful strategies in corporate social responsibility, says Maisoun Jabali, Head of the Embassy's Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR Centre).
During thirteen days, with the start on 8 October, twenty representatives will have the opportunity to study why fighting corruption, promoting equal career opportunities, reducing emissions of carbon dioxide and involving with local communities is important in terms of sustainable business development.
Chinese state-owned companies play an important role in the business environment, both in China and globally. Being the leaders within their sectors in China, the companies can influence enterprises and promote sustainable business.
A number of leading Swedish companies will share their experiences on how they are integrating sustainable strategies into their daily business operations – this is one of the key focuses of the CSR training.
The Sino-Swedish Training Programme on Corporate Social Responsibility for Central State-owned Enterprises is jointly organised by the CSR Centre of the Embassy of Sweden and the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (Sasac) for the second time.
The first time the training was organised was during the fall 2013.
