Top Ten Trends of Corporate Social Responsibility in 2018
Dr. Guo Peiyuan, co-founder and general manager of SynTao, shared “the Top Ten Trends in Corporate Social Responsibility in 2018”. He said: “Entrepreneurs should think about a problem----what do you contribute to a better life? How do you reduce the negative impact on the society in the process of providing services in the company's production process, and at the same time enhance the positive influence of the company on society? This is the core, most important social responsibility and social value of the company. Then it is the so-called donation of money and charity. This is my understanding of the good economy."
