Statement on Japan Earthquake from Asia CSR Experts

East Asian Enterprises should Stand up to Help Japan

We at Asia CSR Expert Committee would like to express the deepest sorrow at the tragic earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster which occurred in Japan on and after March 11, 2011. As CSR experts from China, Japan, and Korea, we strongly urge the following to Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK) enterprises.

First, CJK enterprises should deeply understand that this disaster can cause serious economic, social and environmental impact not only to Japan but also to the broader East Asian communities including China and Korea.

Second, CJK enterprises should support any recovery efforts of Japanese society with every possible human/material resource within their capacities, as part of their corporate social responsibility.

Third, CJK enterprises, during and after Japan recovering from this disaster, should keep strengthening their actions for corporate social responsibility in the Asian context.
