Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Dubai SME have launched a new guide for SMEs to help advance the corporate social responsibility (CSR) profile of Dubai.
The How To Guide Book on CSR for SMEs aims to help SMEs integrate strategic CSR practices within their organisations.
Presented to the public during the Networking Conference on CSR for SMEs, which was held at the chamber’s premises, the guide contains a general checklist based on the four pillars of CSR – workplace, environment, community and marketplace.
In his welcome address Mr. Atiq Juma Nasib, senior vice president of commercial services sector at Dubai Chamber, said that SMEs were an important market segment for the Chamber.
He said: “It is … important that we engage them to implement strategic CSR that has a positive impact on their business in terms of growth and competitiveness and the society at large.”
