The Consorcio Ecuatoriano para la Responsabilidad Social (Ecuadorian Consortium for Social Responsibility – CERES) and Pacific University signed an agreement at the end of October that will extend the effect and reach of CSR in Ecuador. As an initial step, the two partners will implement a self-assessment tool for CSR devised by CERES and Ethos, and hold teaching sessions on the use of this tool for students and teaching staff. The use of the indicators will enable companies to understand the steps necessary for responsible management. The tool is available free on the internet.
