The Government is aware of the fact that the corporate social responsibility (CSR) is highly relevant topic not only for the big companies but also for small and medium—sized enterprises in the regions, their employees and the community around them as well as for the public administration. It takes dialogue and cooperation between the CSR stakeholders as essential for ensuring the coherence of procedures and obtaining feedback and for further development of social responsibility in the Czech Republic.

- Enhancing the understanding and credibility of the concept of social responsibility in the society.
