Launch Event: Blueprint on Tax transparency and responsible tax behaviour (21 March, Brussels)
Tax is increasingly becoming an unavoidable issue for companies. As the leading Business Network on Corporate Social Responsibility, CSR Europe has therefore launched as of 2016 a project on tax transparency and responsible tax behaviour to contribute to this discussion and look at companies’ total impact to society. Moreover, as information on companies’ good practices in this field are not so easily available, CSR Europe, together with PwC Netherlands developed a Blueprint that features and analyses examples of some specific measures and initiatives implemented by companies in this area, which can serve as inspiration for industry peers who are striving to become more responsible and transparent on their tax policies and payments.
The launch of the Blueprint will take place on 21 March 2019 in Brussels at Accountancy Europe’s offices (Avenue d'Auderghem 22-28/8, 1040).
