The State of Play of CSR in Singapore

The State of Play of CSR in Singapore

The presence, profile and prominence of corporate social responsibility (CSR) in Singapore is ambivalent at best. Many Singapore-based companies regard CSR with wariness or indifference Unsurprisingly, me limited CSR efforts in Singapore are generic, and lack me contextualisation to local needs and conditions. Too often CSR is viewed in limited terms as a compliance issue or public relations exercise, rather man as a way of doing business.

In seeking to manage me CSR agenda and to formulate broad CSR strategies, Singapore has opted for the tripartite approach, involving the unions, the employers, and me government Undergirded by the core values consultation, consensus and an acute aversion to confrontation, this engagement process has evolved over me years and is now an integral pan of the CSR landscape here.
