    Visions of CSR: A forum exploring the viewpoints from both sides of the Atlantic on Corporate Social Responsibility
    Presented by The Caux Round Table & The American Chamber of Commerce in France
    The United States and France are united by a friendship that reaches back more than 200 years. This solidarity has not failed through the crises of the past half-century because it is rooted in shared values. However, given the stereotype of American “cowboy capitalism,” do the United States and France today still share common values around capitalism, especially with regard to Corporate Social Responsibility?
    On June 26th, AmCham France and the Caux Round Table presented the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) forum at the Marriott Rive Gauche. Speakers and panelists included, among others:  Christopher Egan - Ambassador, US Mission to the OECD, Bertrand Collomb - Honorary Chairman of Lafarge, Former Chairman & Chief Executive of Lafarge, Stephen Jordan – Executive Director, Business Civic Leadership Center, at the US Chamber of Commerce, Rupprecht Queitsch – Managing Director, Marriott Hotels. The CSR consisted of panels, questions and discussion. Among the forum topics were "The Business Case for CSR – Society’s Needs or a Company’s Profits?", and "SRI: What are the Trans-Atlantic Differences, Why Do They Exist and What is Their Impact?"
