Switzerland to host CSR summit

Switzerland to host CSR summit Switzerland is putting CSR at the top of the agenda, when it takes a group of agencies from across Europe out to Arosa next month for a three day programme. The Switzerland Convention and Incentive Bureau (SCIB) is teaming up with C&IT’s Campaign for Change to discuss the country’s CSR credentials in a pan-European seminar, which will take place during the programme, planned for 13-15 April. It is the second strand of the SCIB’s CSR strategy, which kicked off earlier this month with the sponsorship of CSR category at the ITM Awards on 2 February. The event’s own CSR credentials stretch to using locally sourced food and carbon offsetting all of the delegates’ flights. SCIB’s meetings and incentives manager, Caroline Phillips-Pidroni said that Arosa was chosen as the destination because it has recently started offering carbon-neutral packages for skiers and hikers for the first time. “The seminar is a continuation of our CSR strategy,” she said. “It will enable us to see where the industry is going, and how Switzerland can be involved in it all. The number of agencies going from the UK has yet to be confirmed but Pidroni-Phillips said she hopes to take between 30 and 40 agencies in total from the SCIB’s core European markets.
