Initiatives with our partners:
With Quadrant, the chambers of commerce apply the methodology of learning networks from Plato to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). During one year, approximately 100 managers from Belgian SMEs meet once a month in small groups to learn about and work with CSR. The strength of Quadrant is that it offers companies a complete learning programme (six half day sessions) on sustainability. After an introduction to the conceptual framework and a self-evaluation, a sustainability analysis follows in which each company reflects on the social impacts of its core business and looks for solutions that can have a positive effect on people, the environment and the community. The result is an action plan which is discussed with other managers who participate in the learning network.
At the end of the programme, participants know what sustainability means for their business, they have had the chance to experiment and they have determined an action plan. Unique to this approach is that it’s based on the core activities of a specific company.
CSR is a process. Participating in Quadrant is a start, not the finishing point. Through the Quadrant platform and the Quadrant community, we offer you the opportunity to continue developing your CSR actions:
The Quadrant CSR learning networks are made possible with the support of the Federal Public Service Social Integration, in the framework of the CSR Belgian Federal Action Plan.
