Corporate social responsibility in China's Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector (English)

The information and communications technology (ICT) sector in China has witnessed unprecedented growth throughout the last ten years. In 2006, the sector exported US 232 billion dollars in goods and employed more than 7.7 million people. Furthermore, it is currently the largest ICT exporter in the world and is expected to continue its growth. The purpose of this ICT project is to develop a capability-building strategy that can improve labor and environmental conditions in the ICT industry in Shenzhen. While the project initially focuses on Shenzhen, the recommendations and capability-building strategy are relevant to all regions with a high concentration of ICT supplier companies and can be easily applied elsewhere. The report also includes an annex that outlines relevant international standards and various best-practice examples of capability building. The annex is a guide for companies, government agencies and consumers interested in engaging in CSR capability building.
