Beyond the legal obligation that currently affects companies with 500 employees or more, drafting a CSR report adds value to the company's improvement initiative as seen by the various stakeholders, including employees, customers and civil society. By making the progress achieved and future goals public, the CSR report also helps stimulate a continuous improvement process.
The 5-week MOOC entitled "CSR and Value Creation" addresses management disciplines in terms of responsibility (people, strategy, supply chain, consumer, finance).

Each week is punctuated by a live session in which participants can interact with faculty and the practitioners engaged in applying CSR each day in the business world.
