Uptake of Corporate Social Responsibility by European SMEs and start-ups


We invite you to participate in this survey on the uptake of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) by European SMEs and start-ups. CSR relates to the responsibility of enterprises for their impacts on society. This involves sustainability practices and integration of social, environmental, ethical, human rights and consumer concerns into business operations.

You may fill the survey in English, French, German, Italian or Spanish (see menu above). In case you would like to have a more accurate understanding of survey questions in another European language, please use our survey guide here. Simply click on the link and find the relevant translation.

The results of this survey will be used to support the European Commission and national authorities in better understanding the needs of businesses in terms of CSR and sustainability. The final study will be complemented by tools for SMEs to facilitate CSR activities. Your company’s successful implementation of CSR or sustainability activities may be selected as a good practice example to be promoted by the European Commission.

Please note that the survey is particularly aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises (up to 250 employees) that operate in the following industries:
  • Agro-food industry
  • Textile and garment industry
  • Transport and logistics
  • Retail trade
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Mining and quarrying
  • Tourism and hospitality
  • Banking, finance and insurance
Completing the survey should take approx. 20 minutes. Please provide your answers by April 30th, 2021.  

The survey is being implemented by “Visionary Analytics” on behalf of the European Commission’s Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME).

The survey is anonymous unless you choose to provide your personal details. In any case, the answers that you will provide will not be linked to your name or the organisation that you represent.
