Singapore states that CSR is becoming more important in Singapore for several reasons. The public is increasingly aware of a company’s environmental and social responsibilities, and more and more consumers expect the company to act ethically. Organizations also make it business-reasonable because it helps build credibility, increase employee retention, attract people around the world, and improve their commitment to environmental issues.
Here is the list of companies that embraces CSR in Singapore.
