Community Outreach Committee

About the COC

In June 2019, the British Chamber Shanghai's Community Outreach Committee (previous known as the CSR Committee) announced the launch of its reinvention to a holistic and sustainable platform, raising Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) awareness in the community as well as supporting member companies’ CSR activities.

This transformation leads the Chamber to turn from a simple fund-raising role to an integrated platform to:

  • Update members on legislation and regulations relevant to CSR in China
  • Recommend reliable charity organisations and volunteer opportunities
  • Promote members’ CSR activities via Chamber communication channel
