Invitation to the High Level Meeting of Executive Directors of National Partners & CSR Europe Board

Dear ,


As 2017 draws to a close, I would like to take the opportunity to thank your organisation, one of CSR Europe’s 42 strong network of National Partners for collaborating over this past year. The very high participation in the 2017 Sustainable Development Goals Conference: The Value for Europe at the European Business Summit, has shown me that our CSR movement in Europe is making an important practical difference in 2017.


In order to further strengthen our collaboration and network, I wish to invite you to the High-Level Meeting of the Executive Directors of National Partners and the CSR Europe Board taking place on 24 November 2017 in Brussels (venue tbc).


This meeting, taking place just after the culmination of the European Pact for Youth campaign, is an opportunity to discuss the post Enterprise 2020 Strategy together, as well as how to strengthen our network to face our common challenges.


Covering more than 11,000 enterprises in 35 countries, impacting on the social and economic life in Europe and beyond, we are building our collective capacity throughout Europe on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.


The aim of this meeting is to bring together the Executive Directors of National Partners and the Board of CSR Europe to:

  • Provide a high-level platform for dialogue with NPOs on their needs, priorities and strategic agendas
  • Forge stronger collaboration within the network on the Sustainable Business Exchange Campaign
  • Strengthening the CSR Europe network to meet common goals

Please inform Stefan Crets, Executive Director of CSR Europe, of your attendance by November 2, 2017, via a registration form on our website or by e-mail (


Together we are inspiring the shift towards more sustainable, smart and innovative growth. Better, faster and in a more practical way.  

Yours sincerely,

Hans Daems

Group Public Affairs Officer, Hitachi

Chair of the Board, CSR Europe
