South African Department of Trade and Industry chief director Jocelyn Vass says the Competence Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility is well placed to make a systemic difference, as it was set up to ensure that German companies in South Africa develop a comprehensive and holistic strategy on how CSR is implemented, and where they can pool resources, experience and expertise to make a real and sustainable change in the country.
