The first initiative of its kind in West Africa, it has to its credit the organization of the "International Forum on CSR in Senegal", which is now in its 10th edition (2009 to 2018) (www.forumrsesn.org), creation of a website on corporate CSR practices (www.rsesenegal.com), a Facebook page (www.facebook.com/RSE.Senegal), publication of an electronic newsletter on monitoring and information on CSR, conducting conferences and training courses on CSR in Senegal and West Africa.
