“CSR in the media sector”: a handbook reviews the issues at stake

March 10, 2014

On March 6 in Paris, the handbook “CSR in the media sector”, co-elaborated by the French Observatory on Corporate social responsibility (ORSE) and the Forum RSE Médias (French Media CSR Forum), has been officially published.

The Forum RSE Médias brings together French media companies engaged in a process of social responsibility (CSR) such as Vivendi, Lagardère or TF1. This Forum was established in April 2011 in anticipation of the publication of the first on CSR reporting international framework for media companies by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI Media Sector Supplement).

Although not traditionally associated with sustainable development, media companies – whose main impacts are related to the content they produce and broadcast – deliver more information about their responsibility issues. The Forum RSE Médias is a platform to share best practices, develop sector-specific reporting tools and discuss with the stakeholders.

The first publication of the Forum and ORSE, the handbook “CSR in the media sector” raises precisely the basis for a dialogue with CSR experts and with media actors and observers. It is intended to be updated and expanded over the work of the French group and its partners.   

 This first work deals with the following CSR issues:

➜ Accessibility
➜ Media literacy
➜ Journalism ethics and standards
➜ Environmental impact
➜ Protecting youth
➜ Representing and promoting diversity
➜ Raising public awareness on sustainable development
