In 2005, CEEP began work with the support of the European Commission on a co-funded initiative which aimed to address the subject of Corporate Social Responsibility within European public SMEs. This project, known as Discerno (Dissemination of Corporate Ethics and Responsibility through Networks of public enterprises), supported companies offering services of general interest seeking to adopt socially and environmentally responsible investments, production and consumption. It provided training and sought to increase the impact of CSR actions by deepening guidelines for specific sectors and encouraging best practice using self-training and self-assessment. These led to the development of a CEEP-CSR Label for enterprises that had successfully integrated CSR into their culture and operations.

Today the initiative has passed to CEEP’s management, along with the task of increasing the adoption, recognition and award of the CEEP-CSR Label.

The 7th edition of the Label is now online, with a brand new online self-assessment tool that will allow you to evaluate your own compliance with Corporate Social Responsibility.
