Companies integrate social and environmental concerns … for the sociality

The Idea

• So far, Egypt has attached relatively importance to Corporate Social Responsibility

(CSR), but this is changing, particularly because of the growing international
prominence of CSR, indeed it is now becoming fashionable in Egypt.

• NGOs. are demanding that companies in Egypt increase their CSR efforts in accordance
with the international practice, there is very little mention of the CSR in the Egyptian

These CSR activities are not required from the NGOs only, but became an
international requirement.
For example:

• A CSR statement is needed from the companies that would like to be registered in the
Egyptian Stock Market (we believe that this degree will be applied soon).

• Other example is the export oriented as many of the importers will require CSR
statements from their suppliers to accept their products.
Target Segment

We have chosen the textile and garment sector as a start because it

presents the following:
1 – One of the most important sectors in the Egyptian industry.
2 – Intensive labor sector.
What Proteam Egypt offers?

• Awareness campaigns
• Certified Technical training
• Consultation (SA8000)

Supporting target groups to cope with the new international requirements and standards
(C.S.R.) and prepare them for export regulations, enriching labor's knowledge and skills, so
as to effectively and efficiently cope with the sudden market changes

Expected Impact
• The companies will comply with the Egyptian and international requirements.
• Raise the awareness and apply the CSR at very important sectors.
How to be sponsored?

We expect a co-operation between the World Bank, ministry of investment,

ministry of industry and trade, to provide funding and Logistics
