The project has showed that Swedish companies have an excellent reputation in China thanks to their clear CSR commitment giving Swedish companies an extra competitive edge. Swedish companies have been eager to participate and share their experiences, and to invite their partners to meetings, seminars and round tables to discuss and influence CSR issues. In 2013, focus was on activities on young workers’ conditions and sustainable purchases. The project has the support of the Governments of Sweden and China through a Memorandum of understanding (MOU) that emphasises the importance of CSR cooperation.
Through the project a close cooperation has been established with several Chinese cities such as Shanghai, Wuxi, Nanjing, Chengdu, Wuhan, Beijing, as well as with several Swedish and Chinese organisations and universities.
