Abstract:Switzerland is known for high-quality products, chocolate, cheese fondue, skiing and for its political neutrality. However, the country also has a rich tradition of responsible and sustainable business rooted in its Protestant ethic.
The Swiss Confederation consists of 26 states (so called Cantons) and unites nearly 8 million people. The city of Berne is the capital of this federal republic which dates back to 1 August 1291 when the first three Cantons joined into a confederation. Today Switzerland is one of the richest countries in the world measured by GDP per capita and cities such as Zurich and Geneva are highly ranked in terms of quality of life. The country has four official languages, French, German, Italian and Romansh.

- The World Guide to CSR: A Country-by-Country Analysis of Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility
The World Guide to CSR is the first book to provide comparable national profiles that describe the evolution and practice of Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility (CSR) for 58 countries and 5 global regions. Each regional and national profile includes key information about the relevant CSR history, country-specific issues, trends, research and leading organisations. The purpose of the book is to give CSR professionals (including managers, consultants, academics and NGOs focusing on the social, environmental and ethical responsibilities of business) a quick reference guide to CSR in different regional and national contexts. This unique resource will be an essential acquisition for all organisations who need to benchmark their CSR strategies throughout different regions and cultures and want the best possible intelligence on the key issues and concerns relating to corporate social responsibility in all of the markets in which they operate.
