Abstract: This publication provides an overview of corporate social responsibility (CSR) issues that are relevant for the global electronics sector. It is a joint initiative by the Dutch CSR Platform (MVO Platform) and GoodElectronics. The publication is based on the 2007 CSR Frame of Reference published by the CSR Platform which reflects the Platform’s vision on corporate social responsibility. In this publication the CSR Platform and GoodElectronics aim to apply the general standards and principles of the Frame of Reference to the electronics sector in particular. Several aspects (social, environmental and economic) in different phases of the supply chain (mining, manufacturing and disposal) are described from a corporate social responsibility perspective. This publication categorises the many problems that the sector still faces. Progressive initiatives that are relevant to business, government and civil society are presented, and concrete recommendations are formulated.
