CSR Trends & Developments Across the Levant

CSR Trends & Developments Across the Levant

As CSR is now emerging in Lebanon and the Levant, it is becoming critical to identify the areas in need of development. Similar to the GCC region, charitable practices have always existed in the Levant. However, this existing concept has led to a confusion between philanthropy and Social Corporate Responsibility (CSR), making it more difficult for CSR to penetrate the regional market. Understanding this distinction is critical for implementing CSR strategically into corporations and, thus, the sustainable development of the region. The following statistics summarises the current progress of CSR in the region and shows a sample that represents the general consensus in the region.
