Fernando Casado replied to Caroline Ashley's discussion Do you think we need to make a clear distinction between CSR and inclusive business, or in reality is it more of a continuum?

CAD Highlights on 2012 – A good year.

2012 has been a strategic and positive year for us. I say this almost in an apologetic tone, as it has also been the year with the highest unemployment rate in the history of Spain, the year that threatened the European social cohesion, and a year where we missed once again the opportunity to achieve progress towards the sustainability and poverty eradication agenda (COP18 failure, Syria war, inequality and poverty still increasing in many regions of the world). But for our Centro de Alianzas para el Desarrollo, it has actually been a good year for many reasons. In terms of project implementation, we have managed to sign new contracts with UNDP, GIZ, IFC, IADB, World Bank and UNICEF, promoting initiatives on climate change management, energy efficiency, green economy, partnerships for development and business innovation for young entrepreneurs.
