The cornerstone of responsible business in Myanmar

The cornerstone of responsible business in Myanmar | Responsible Investment in Myanmar | Scoop.it

A practical framework for corporate social responsibility in Myanmar should consist of three elements: responsibility, inclusivity and strategy. Responsibility can be achieved after identifying priority areas for responsible business activities within six “capitals”: legal, environmental, political, economical, technological and social. Inclusivity can be achieved after identifying inclusive business opportunities within the areas of employment, along value chains, through business linkages and by developing new customer markets. A strategy can also be developed, to focus on responsibility and inclusivity.

New Practical Guide for Sustainable and Inclusive Business in Myanmar

Myanmar is experiencing rapid economic growth, and responsible and inclusive businesses will be an essential part of the country’s road to sustainable, equitable development. Attractive market opportunities exist to provide much needed goods and services, such as tourism, telecommunications, health and education, but responsible businesses will also need to provide local employment opportunities and develop human resources through training and capacity building. Protecting Myanmar’s precious natural environment and rich biodiversity must also be a priority, which may be assisted by responsible international investment.
