Sitra, FIBS and a number of pioneering companies are co-operating to identify and implement the best practices of sustainable data use from the perspective of CSR. The workshop series aims to create a competitive edge from new rules and a fair data economy.


The series of workshops defines sustainable data use from the perspective of corporate social responsibility (CSR). The work is based on the principles of fair data sharing and is part of Sitra’s IHAN project that aims to create a fair data economy. In a fair data economy, data sharing benefits everyone: companies, individuals and society.

For whom?

The making data part of corporate social responsibility concept is aimed at companies’ decision-makers and experts in, for example, the following fields:

  • corporate social responsibility, social responsibility;
  • business or customer relationship development, strategy;
  • information systems;
  • personal data management, data security, identity management, legal matters, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR);
  • management.

How to get involved

Enrolment in the workshop series has closed. However, you can make an impact! We are collecting information on this topic directly from companies with a survey (available only in Finnish). The results of the survey will be published later this year.

The network convenes three times during the spring of 2020, aiming to create a new dimension for corporate social responsibility. The participants will be able to apply their expertise in defining how this objective is achieved.

In general, in the spring of 2020, the network’s working language will be Finnish, but materials such as best-practice and hint lists may be published in English as well.
