On 15 January 2020 the Federal Council adopted the revised CSR Action Plan 2020-2023. It thus confirms its commitment to responsible business conduct.
Since the adoption of the CSR position paper with the 2015-2019 Action Plan, important progress has been made. The strategy set out in the CSR position paper with four strategic thrusts has proven its worth and will be maintained. The first and third strategic thrusts to help shape the CSR framework and promote CSR in developing and transition countries will be retained. However, the second and fourth strategic directions for raising awareness and supporting Swiss companies and promoting transparency with regard to CSR activities of companies will be slightly adapted in the light of developments in recent years: Based on the awareness raising activities already carried out in recent years, the focus will now be on effective support for companies and stakeholder dialogue. In the promotion of transparency, due to international developments (e.g. at the OECD), the review of the implementation of CSR instruments and digitisation are also taken into account.
