Fraunhofer sees corporate social responsibility (CSR) as our organization’s wide-ranging duties in economic, environmental and social matters. This includes our responsibility in respect of our employees and the responsible use of resources. As a research organization, we primarily see CSR as a call to ensure that our research contributes to solving social challenges and that possible social and environmental consequences of our work are considered right from earliest stages of our responsi­ble research processes. In other words, CSR means our contri­bution to sustainable development. We are setting out to fulfill this responsibility to an even greater extent, by continuously developing our organization further, formulating (sustainability) targets and launching initiatives and measures to achieve those targets; we then give a transparent account of the steps we have taken in our sustainability reporting.
