CSR AWARENESS WEEK 2022

CSR AWARENESS WEEK IS ORGANIZED THE SECOND TIME THIS YEAR

Last year, the Swedish Chamber of Commerce organized the first CSR Awareness Week in Hungary with great results. This year – between June 27 and July 3rd – many businesses and non-profits will have the possibility to create awareness towards CSR and to start a cooperation within a company or between organisations.

CSR Awareness Week has been launched in Hungary for the second time this year, between June 27 and the July 3rd. The aim of the campaign, which has been started by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Hungary is to create awareness towards the importance of CSR among its members and in the Hungarian business sector. They would also like to inspire participants to find new ways to expand and communicate their responsibility activities.

Already last year, many Hungarian businesses, chambers and organisations joined the initiative, with Advantage Austria, AmCham, Belgabiz, Danish Business Club, Dutcham, CCI France Hongrie, Swisscham, Bridge Budapest, ÖKA, AIPM, HotelHero, HuGBC, LEO FM, National Association of Large Families in Hungary and Single Parents Club Foundation among them. This year further organizations were among the firsts that registered to take part as the German-Hungarian Chamber of Commerce, the Irish-Hungarian Business Circle, IVSZ (Association of IT Enterprises), the Association of Hungarian Malls, and also the National Association of Managers and the Hungarian Tire Association signed up. Everyone interested can join by using the common logo and the hashtag #csrawarenessweek2022.

The first campaign last year achieved very good results: 160 posts and articles have been published, and 80 businesses, 40 organisations, 20 people shared their news and thoughts connected to CSR. Through this activity it became apparent, how multi-faceted corporate responsibility is: from helping children and supporting healthcare to diversity, sustainability and the wellbeing of employees lots of topics have been covered.

We are very curious, what campaigns and programs the participating organisations will communicate about. CSR is now an integrated part of business, still a lot of times it is talked about only internally. We think it is important to make these activities known by the wider public to inspire other businesses to start a sustainable, long term CSR strategy.” – told Roland Jakab, President of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Hungary.

The Embassy of Sweden to Hungary has commissioned a survey in Hungary about CSR. According to that, companies are now realising the importance of the kind of CSR that they are doing, not only for clients but also for potential employees. It was also an interesting result that three-quarters of companies have already donated money for charitable causes and 56% of them have also organised volunteer work. Not only corporations are active in CSR: small- and medium sized companies support good causes in a similar proportion. But since many of them are not focusing on communication that much, the activities remain unknown by the wide public. CSR Awareness Week is aiming to change that.

CALL TO CATION: CSR Awareness Week

Based on the success of the last year’s CSR Awareness Week we would like to invite and encourage you to participate in this year’s activity as well commencing on 27 June 2022.

Similarly to last year, we are providing you with the basic information on how to participate in the CSR Awareness Week 2022. Registration will be open until June 22, participation is of course free of charge and additional information and tools will be shared with participants on June 23. Please share this communication with the appropriate team members of your company/association.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is becoming an integral part of doing business. However, many times, the information and outcomes of the programs stay internal within the participating entities, missing out on the opportunity to drive inspiration to others.

The concept of a CSR Awareness Week was initiated by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Hungary and our Chamber is happy to join and motivate our members to participate. During June 27- July 3, we are encouraging everyone involved in CSR activities in Hungary to join the positive communication flow and use their regular communication channels to raise awareness, visibility and communicate the value of their CSR activities under one joint umbrella logotype and hashtag (see below).

This activity is open to all linked to all companies, associations, business clubs, embassies, chambers and of course the entire NGO sector.

Preparatory steps:

  • Register your company/organization via the link here by latest June 22. Participation is free of charge.
  • Forward this communication to the right team members within your entity and start developing your own plan and collaterals and visual elements. We have enclosed the joint logotype (attached) and hashtag #csrawarenessweek2022 to be used in all communications related to this program

Action plan:

  • By the latest 23 June, registered participants will receive additional information about the program and participants, which can be leveraged in the final preparations for the week. This will include a joint introduction text which can be used at the start of the week to have an aligned message platform.
  • 27 June, Monday: Start the communication by sharing or publishing the common text above on your communication platforms (social media, webpage, newsletter, etc.)
    • Selected umbrella participants will be asked to share a joint press release to their press contacts. The Swedish Chamber of Commerce will coordinate this
  • 28 June – 3 July: all participants to share their own CSR stories, activities, etc. on their communications platforms with the common #csrawarenessweek2022 and logo
  • Week of 4 July: summary of the results

The summary of the week and last year’s results can be found here.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Hungary (swedishchamber@swedishchamber.hu) in case you have any questions.

2021 – JUNE 28 – JULY 4

JOIN THE CSR AWARENESS WEEK 2021!

June 28 – July 4

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is becoming an integral part of doing business and can often be a competitive advantage. However, we have learned during our CSR event in April and also through a study ordered by the Embassy of Sweden, that external communication of the value and results of these type of cooperation and activities can be challenging for many actors.

During June 28- July 4, we are encouraging everyone involved in CSR activities in Hungary to join the positive communication flow and use their regular communication channels to raise awareness, visibility and communicate the value of their CSR activities under one joint umbrella logotype and hashtag.

This activity is open to all linked to all companies, associations, business clubs, embassies, chambers and of course the entire NGO sector.

The concept is really simple: share your own CSR stories, activities, etc. on your communications platforms during the week June 28-July 4 by using the common logo and #csrawarenessweek2021.

2021 – JUNE 28 – JULY 4
