The China CSR Awards 2016, organised by the British Chamber with AmCham, will recognise companies that have made a contribution however big or small to creating a fairer society in China. 
Why does it matter? Aside from the responsibility of companies to be good citizens, CSR in 2016 is critical for good business.The Government agenda has shifted from hardware to software. Under the 12th Five Year Plan roads have been built, schools erected and the infrastructure of cities improved. The 13th Five Year Plan will shift the focus to a greener environment, quality of education and the living standards of the least well off.
How will your company make a contribution to this social evolution? We want to hear your stories of what you have done well and what you wish you could have done better. Also we hope to showcase the most productive partnerships in sectors such as education, health and poverty alleviation and connect you to new friends in the CSR community.
The judges and hosts are shown below. Winners will be announced on the evening. 
  • Be inspired by other contributors
  • Network with new stakeholders 
  • Put your message over to media (Chinese media will attend)
