Railsponsible’s immediate ambition is to promote and reinforce the initiative and to welcome more members. The body is also striving to further simplify the assessment processes for suppliers and to make CSR one of the key selection criteria in the tendering phase.
The next Railsponsible initiative meeting will be held at InnoTrans 2016 in Berlin. Most of Railsponsible’s member CPOs will gather for a discussion at the European Railway Industry Association (Unife) stand on September 21. During this event, the CPOs will present Railsponsible’s achievements over the past year and outline its strategy up to 2020. A ceremony to award CSR best-in-class suppliers will also be held.
