The European Union wants businesses to assume greater responsibility for raising social and environmental standards. But the member-states remain deeply divided over the degree to which the EU should promote corporate social responsibility (CSR). European businesses worry that the European Commission could use CSR as an excuse to create further red tape. Alasdair Murray argues that the EU does have an important role to play in promoting CSR, providing it resists the temptation to pursue overly prescriptive policies.
