January 15, 2016 I am glad to note that Dutch investments in Azerbaijan have grown steadily over the years. The Netherlands became one of the biggest investor in Azerbaijan in the non-oil sector. Many Dutch companies are present in the country and have established business links here. The Dutch business culture and practice are renowned for putting special emphasis on sustainability. Experience shows that paying attention to the environment and stakeholder welfare does not require a costly trade-off in profits. On the contrary, sustainability ultimately stimulates innovation and leads to new business opportunities. In order to realize a responsible, sustainable and more commercial cooperation, Dutch and Azerbaijani private sectors are encouraged to integrate Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) principles in their core business. Both countries will benefit from sharing views and experiences on CSR related themes. Especially in a more challenging economic environment due to external factors these principles can play an important role in strengthening economic cooperation. Please find enclosed a CSR Passport which intends to foster a better understanding of the general CSR principles among companies and to provide them with a preliminary insight in the CSR context also applicable in Azerbaijan.
