Our History

RVRCSR About-History.jpg

 

The AIM-Ramon V. del Rosario, Sr. Center for Corporate Social Responsibility‚Äôs main thrust is the management of corporate citizenship relative to the competitiveness of corporations and its impact on society.  We promote corporate responsibility through case-writing, research, survey research, investigative research, program development, executive education training and local and regional conferences.

Two of our major thrusts are engagement with firms and industries in Asia in order to promote Corporate Social Responsibility as a core business strategy and to expand CSR as fundamental to doing business in a globalized economy.

The Center is named after Ambassador Ramon V. del Rosario, Sr. founding trustee of the Asian Institute of Management and founder and Chairman of the PHINMA Group in the Philippines.  The major institutional sponsors of the RVR CSR Center are the Phinma Group, Ford Foundation, Asian Bank, AB Capital & Investment Corporation, and SGV & Company.  Individual sponsors include Mr. Washington SyCip and Mr. Jose L. Cuisia, Jr.

The RVR CSR Center is one of the first research centers in the region concentrating on corporate responsibility issues and is in the process of the establishing and creating its own network in the field of CSR, connecting and collaborating with counterpart organizations throughout the region.  We aim to bring visibility to the Institute through its regional conferences and research.  Through our work, we hope to be recognized by the business community and by its regional counterparts as an authority in our fields of expertise.
