What is the Government doing?

In 2014, the Department for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation launched Ireland’s first National Plan on CSR titled ‘Good for Business, Good for the Community’ 2014-2016. In the policy document, it promised to encourage the development of CSR in the SME sector and support sustainable business models through public policy supports, such as green procurement and initiatives to increase SME access to public procurement. A new National Action Plan for CSR is in the process of being drafted.
