Call for proposals - European corporate social responsibility award scheme 47/G/ENT/CIP/12/E/N02S005 Closed!


The overall objective of this call for proposals is to give higher visibility to excellent practice in the field of CSR and to share such practice across the EU, so encouraging more enterprises to cooperate with their stakeholders to better meet their social responsibility.

The specific objective is to support a series of national CSR award schemes, coordinated within a common European framework. This may involve establishing new award schemes in countries where such schemes currently do not exist, and bringing a new European dimension to some existing national award schemes.


Within an overall European framework, organisers of national award schemes should have the flexibility to ensure that their scheme is adapted to particular national circumstances and priorities. National award schemes co-financed under this call for proposals should all share the following essential elements:

  1. Theme
  2. Partnerships
  3. Multistakeholder jury
  4. Categories
  5. Criteria
  6. Coordination with national authorities
  7. Non-duplication
