  • Description: The concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been gaining popularity in Poland over the last decade. Enterprises are invited to actively engage in it by the European Union, which carries out its Horizon 2020 strategy for intelligent and balanced development promoting social inclusion, with its associated programmes and activities. State and local governments include the CSR issue in their regional development programmes. Numerous public bodies and NGOs also promote the CSR concept among enterprises present in the Polish market. Entrepreneurs can attend training sessions in CSR, receive grants to develop their CSR strategy or best practices to be later implemented in their companies. As a result of the above, annual "responsible company" contests are held and reports summing up best practices in CSR are published. According to the interviewees, such collaboration could give support to innovativeness, improve the situation and competitive position of each of the parties, and in result, raise the competitive position of the region, with benefits to its inhabitants.
