The output consists in a report of a survey including the analysis of CSR policies of big corporate groups and smaller businesses. It also concerns a study of mass catering approaches and if relevant public provisions regarding school meals since some public authorities develop specific sustainable approaches. Therefore we target highly advertised corporate groups’ CSR policies but also approaches developed by local SMEs which have developed projects in the ecological niche market which provide success stories which are worth studying.
