Knowledge Cafe on Responsible Business Practices
The Center for Economic Fragility and Governance (CEFg) will organize a program for Knowledge Cafe on Responsible Business Practices in collaboration with Asia Society for Social Improvement & Sustainable Transformation (ASSIST) with Headquarters in Manila, Philippines on September 23, 2016.
The economic growth over the last few decades has brought with it social and environmental pressures as well as the need to raise standards in terms of corporate governance. Good governance makes an organization committed to sound operating practices based on conscience, openness, fairness, professionalism, mutual respect and trust, transparency and accountability in building confidence of its various stakeholders thereby paving the way for its long-term success and sustainability.
