- The member companies of scienceindustries are aware of their social responsibility and take this seriously - for decades, they have voluntarily got involved in a wide range of fields in CSR activities related to issues such as protecting the environment, promoting education and fighting corruption.
- The international community has created a multi-faceted set of CSR regulations incorporating guidelines and conduct recommendations for multinational companies. Government commitments beyond this are not a productive approach. Solo action on the part of Switzerland would be ineffective and would put an unnecessary strain on our country as a business location.
- Greater juridification of CSR and particularly the broadening of public liability for multinational companies - as provided by the Responsible Business Initiative - would be counter-productive. Rather, it is a question of increasing the responsibility of the economy itself.
