Our philosophy

The activities of any company are not limited to its business performance. The company plays an important role in the community and society, helps to further develop the skills of its employees, suppliers and consumers.


Business affects the economy, society and the environment, and this is what shapes company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR). It is extremely important for any business to reduce the negative and increase the positive impacts of its operation. This is possible only by adhering to the principles of sustainable development, the balance between meeting modern needs and protecting the interests of future generations.


The CSR Development Center promotes the principles of sustainable business and social responsibility in Ukraine. We unite various companies, advocate for the development of CSR at the national level, and together with the businesses and donors implement sustainable CSR projects for systemic change in Ukraine.


We create sustainable CSR projects for the better future of the country. Our dream is to make Ukraine a great place to be in, and our incredible CSR Development Center team works hard to achieve it.
