The European social dialogue in the sugar industry has been based on exchange of views and concerted action on all subjects of common interest. Since 1998 the European social partners have signed about 12 joint positions on social and economic matters. In February 2003 they took a further step forward by launching a Code of Conduct on Corporate Social Responsibility, which came into force on 1st January 2004.
In 2011, an updated brochure on “Corporate Social Responsibility and social dialogue in the European Sugar Industry was published. The brochure is available here.
