The Fifth CSR Forum in Egypt 2018

The fifth CSR forum is held to create a state of integration among all the parties concerned with community work in Egypt. The forum aims at providing the opportunity for the private sector and civil society to present their development plans and discuss the most important and crucial issues that can drive our economy forward and guarantee a decent life for every Egyptian citizen.

This year the forum is held under the title “Development drivers in various sectors” to highlight the actual needs of the sectors that significantly influence every citizen’s life and, as well as discussing Egypt Vision 2030 and how the private sector supports it and its requirements to unite all efforts.

The forum will also shed light on the different means of encouraging private sector to participate in the development and how it can achieve integration between the business and development goals. Also, the forum will launch an initiative to support and develop the ailing industrial zones.

Moreover, the forum will discuss how to elaborate community work concept in Egypt through spreading awareness among youth about the importance of volunteering in development projects, in addition to building trust between the civil society and private sector and highlighting the NGOs law and its role in setting a legislative frame.

The second day of the forum will explain the importance of combining informal and formal economy, as well as the role of the banking sector, especially the financial inclusion, in achieving sustainable development. It will also highlight how to achieve sustainable growth through engaging women and people with special needs in the labor market.

The forum brings together all community work and CSR stakeholders in Egypt to exchange ideas and expertise, and establish eff­ective partnerships. This forum acts as a very influential tool for promoting new initiatives and highlighting the e­fforts of the private sector in achieving real development and engaging in a serious dialogue with government representatives.



CSR Egypt was established in 2015, with the aim of spreading awareness among companies and state institutions on the importance of fulfilling their social responsibilities toward the community.
CSR Egypt plays an important role in creating a state of integration between all community work stakeholders; whether they are government institutions, civil society institutions, private sector companies or experts, through organizing several conferences, forums and workshops, in addition to providing technical and marketing consultations.
CSR Egypt Philosophy is built around bridging between Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and development. In addition, we believe that networks and partnerships can be powerful vehicles for change. Thus, our services are designed to spread awareness among private sector on the importance of fulfilling their social responsibilities towards the community.
CSR Egypt also aims to ensure effective and dynamic channels of communication between governmental institutions, private sector and civil society organizations to support the alignment of CSR plans and activities with the overarching national policies and strategies of the government to achieve sustainable development.
