|"CSR in Greece" is an integrated and effective platform combining expertise and communication, with corporate social responsibility issues. Founded in 2010 by CAPITAL LINK, it aims to support CSR initiatives and to bridge the communication between companies and NGOs. It also provides information on current CSR issues and developments in Greece and abroad; promotes the actions of socially responsible Greek companies; facilitates the access of business to non-governmental and non-profit organizations in a completely transparent frame; highlights the needs of society and the bodies representing it, achieving synergy between the two; responds successfully to the financial and material needs; and constitutes a communication bridge between all social and business groups.
