Mapping of good practices

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.

The report mainly consists in a collection of practices implemented by companies, the principle they rely on, their objectives  and the ways they commit their staff and communicate with their customers. The practices are analyzed and a critical overview  is provided. It  fosters common points and differences in  businesses’ approaches  according to  the size and the type of companies.

It  includes flipcharts comparing the schemes enterprises have developed and  their deep motivations  and concern for sustainability and the type of Corporate Social Responsibility they have developed.

A specific chapter points out to the policy of the companies in terms of internships and work-based learning and  foster on the ways sustainability can influence their approach of offering work experience and apprenticeships, particularly in terms of social responsibility.
