  5. Stakeholders’ perceptions of CSR in Thailand

  6. Findings and Outlook • CSR is taking hold fast in Thailand and the business case is increasingly recognised (brand, reputation, trust) • Thai companies are generally conservative in terms of disclosure and should see the business benefits of improved reporting • Stakeholders are becoming increasingly sophisticated and are not impressed by philanthropy: CSR must be strategic • Companies and their stakeholders are recognizing a new imperative over the environment • Are Thai companies missing out on global opportunities because of their relatively poor approach to value chain issues? • A strong role for Thai businesses in community involvement and development building on existing strengths amongst businesses and NGOs
