Li Rongrong, the director of the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council, said at a recent corporate social responsibility working conference that central government enterprises should gain a better understanding of CSR and set themselves up as examples of CSR best practice.

Li asked central government enterprises to disclose their information in an open manner, enhance communications with their stakeholders, strengthen their responsibilities in transnational operations, and be a model of CSR practice for other businesses as well as being pillars of China's economy.

It is understood that China's central enterprises have strengthened their capacity for sustainable development, consolidated efforts in energy saving and environmental protection, and actively created job opportunities in the face of the financial crisis. In addition, they have undertaken more responsibility and contributed a lot to China's economy, society, and the people, through donations and services.

Huang Shuhe, the deputy director of SASAC, said that he believed that central enterprises have set up a good image in fulfilling CSR in overseas operations and the official hoped that these enterprises would continue to increase their capabilities in fulfilling their CSR obligations in their operations in foreign countries.
