This event will examine the current state of play on corporate social and environmental responsibility in Latin America. Bringing together an expert panel of corporate practitioners, NGO professionals and academics, with experience of local and transnational CSR projects in different Latin American states, speakers will facilitate an open discussion on the potential and problems surrounding CSR in the region.

Discussion will also consider the emergence of new trends in this arena, such as social enterprise and impact investing, which are taking older debates on the purpose and social responsibility of the corporation in new directions in many Latin American countries. Exploring old and new models for CSR in this vein, panellists will also discuss the role of corporate social engagement in Latin America in the current landscape of economic and political unrest seen in many states across the region.
