MAKING DATA PART OF CSR
Sitra, FIBS and a number of pioneering companies co-operated to identify and implement the best practices of sustainable data use from the perspective of CSR. The workshop series aimed to create a competitive edge from new rules and a fair data economy.
What is it about?
The series of workshops defined 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.
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);
How to get involved
Enrolment in the workshop series has closed. The network convened three times during the spring and summer of 2020, aiming to create a new dimension for corporate social responsibility. The participants were able to apply their expertise in defining how this objective was achieved.
In general, the network’s working language was Finnish, but the articles and the Corporate social responsibility encompasses data publication were published also in English.
This is how it goes.
