Many German companies still need to implement corporate social responsibility strategically and practically. Even though the management and advisory board of 73 per cent of German companies promote respective activities, only 39 per cent of companies actually integrate corporate responsibility measures into their business processes and value chains. This is evident from the CRI Corporate Responsibility Index published by Bertelsmann Foundation.
