Madrid, 11 August 2014 – Access Info Europe highlighted the need for further access to information around the non-financial reporting of companies as part of a European Commission survey on corporate social responsibility.
Civil society has emphasised the lack of regulation in this area, and stressed the need for more transparency and accountability regarding the impact of business actions on trade, the environment, development and human rights.
The Commission is looking to receive feedback on the implementation of its most recent policy on corporate social responsibility, which is outlined in «A renewed EU strategy 2011-14 for Corporate Social Responsibility» (COM(2011) 681).
Open to the public, it is an opportunity for citizens to highlight the need for further transparency and accountability in the areas of corporate reporting, tax and public procurement.
