2003-03-06 

The World Bank Institute program on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainable Competitiveness (www.csrwbi.org) is developing an online training module on the Global Compact as part of their web-based course series on CSR issues. The module will be developed in close cooperation with the Global Compact Office.

The web-based course series is part of a program designed to introduce CSR in both theory and practice, and help participants acquire a basic knowledge of how CSR can provide a foundation for achieving sustainable development and corporate citizenship. The online course focuses on introducing the key elements of the policy and business environments that support CSR and outlines how these elements function as an integrated system. It is currently offered in English and is free of charge. All materials are available online, and the course takes about 6-8 hours to complete.
