CSR benefits of an event outside Paris

CSR and professional events

The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) evaluates the impact of business activities on the society and the environment. These three letters seem to have a magical effect on the good conscience. All you have to do is draw them out to appear virtuous. As for what they really imply...

In short, is CSR a gas factory or a pie in the sky? One thing is certain, CSR is no longer an option for event professionals.
