The 3rd CSR Forum in Egypt 2017

The Third Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) forum in Egypt will be held in May 2017, in light of the government’s commitment to achieve comprehensive and sustainable development in Egypt. This is in addition to the private sector’s eagerness to support the community.

The aim of the forum is to unite the public and private sectors’ efforts with civil society organizations and work side by side on achieving the desired objectives of this program to ensure sustainability.

During the forum, the government will present its plans and discuss means of cooperation with the private sector and civil society institutions to find mutually agreed solutions and a clear vision, around which all efforts will be united.

Through its sessions, the forum will put forth ideas to create a clear vision of the state’s economic program to achieve sustainable development and the state’s vision of 2030.

This is in addition to putting forth solutions on how to utilize the available resources to achieve an impact that can be felt by both the citizen and the community.

The forum also aims to develop a vision and solutions for reducing the budget deficit through the private sector’s participation in supporting the state’s developmental projects.

The forum will also shed light on sustainable development engines and constraints whether they’re related to legislations and laws or making financial reforms or eliminating bureaucracy by having a plan upon which stakeholders and concerned authorities agree, in order to accelerate the implementation of its developmental objective.

The CSR Forum will review investment plans across Egyptian governorates, and the mechanics of creating a sustainable village to be a role model for all Egyptian villages, and to develop standards to measure achievement rates and ensure a return on investment.

This year, the forum will provide an opportunity for companies and civil society organizations to present their experiences in achieving the developmental impact of sustainability.

The event this year is expected to gather more than 1,000 people, including representatives of companies and those with expertise in the field of social responsibility in order to exchange ideas and develop innovative solutions for the development, implementation and support of the state’s plans.

Testimonials

" I had the pleasure to participate in the first Egypt CSR Forum in my capacity at the time as UNDP’s Poverty Team Leader. The Forum acted as an excellent platform to galvanize the potentials of the private sector community to contribute collectively towards the development of Egypt. The Forum brought together practitioners, academia, private sector, foundations, NGOs and international partners. There was also strong government commitment and involvement. I believe that CSR interventions can only be realized if all stakeholders talk to one another and build on each other’s strength. The CSR forum availed that opportunity for us all."

Nahla Zeitoun Assistant Resident Rep. UNDP Egypt

" I am personally extending my sincere gratitude to the organizing committee of the 2016 CSR Forum. The conference was executed with the utmost professionalism and tailored to meet the needs of the attendees. Delivered with detailed perfectionism that resulted in wide spread networking covering all sectors from private, government and NGO's, resulting in extensive knowledge sharing. Good luck for the upcoming Egypt CSR Forum 2017."

Dr. Sherifa Fouad Sherif Professor of Public Administration

تشرفت بالمشاركة فيه فى المرات السابقة فى أكثر من جلسة كمتحدث وكمحاور وأرى أنه بالنسبة للتنظيم والموضوعات التى طُرحت للمناقشة والشخصيات المتحدثة والمحاورين كانوا على أعلى مستوى

Mr. Niazy Sallam Chairman Egyptian Food Bank

“On the occasion of the 3rd CSR Forum , I wish to recognize the progress made in instilling the culture of sustainability in the Egyptian business community and the consequent growth in the number, diversity and value of initiatives driven in this forum .This truly transcends our PepsiCo’s Performance with Purpose strategy which is to focus on long-term growth while leaving a positive imprint on society. I consider the CSR forum as one of the biggest sustainability platforms in Egypt integrating the development efforts of the public sector, private sector and civil society organizations. Much remains to be done, however, in order to deploy all the synergies that only a concerted, focused national strategy can help achieve, we all need to give it our best. I wish the CSR Forum continuous success in bringing iconic catalysts of change and subject matter experts in the sustainability field to drive Egypt vision 2030 to reality”

Mrs. Shereen Shaheen Corporate Affairs head PepsiCo North East Africa

"An effective platform for exchanging development ideas and for collaboration with government, private sector and civil society professionals and and agents of change. We were able to start a number of joint development initiatives on the basis of our participation and networking at the event." 


Mr. Alaa Fahmy National Programme Officer UNIDO

I am both honoured and privileged to be part of the CSR Forum that proved from its first year to be the premium platform to discuss sustainable Development issues in Egypt. The forum brings together key Politicians, leaders, academics and influential practitioners representing a wide-spectrum of industries, economies and organizations to discuss challenges, share best practices and identify solutions forward. Today, the CSR Forum is not anymore a simple initiative, it represents a cornerstone of Egypt’s sustainability conversation especially with the follow up of the recommendations of the 2nd CSR Forum and the Model of a sustainable village that reflects the power of Team Work and Coordination as well as Resilience.
