WHO WE ARE

Established in October 2018, Bulgarian Association of CSR Professionals (BАKSOS) is made up of Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability specialists who have been working for years to develop and implement this concept in Bulgarian companies.

 

 

Mission

In 2018, we recognized the need for standardization of the profession of CSR in Bulgaria. For this purpose we formed an organization that could support this call for action and work with governmental and policy makers to implement the change.

Businesses have a proactive, creative role to look and recognize the challenges for society and offer new / innovative approaches to meeting them. (Marina - this line I took from UNGC document in drive)

Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability are a priority for countless companies and organizations. And this wide array of sectors and professionals calls for different CSR solutions and specialties.
