In the context of austerity and weakened states, companies are becoming more and more involved in public goods and general interest, especially multinational European companies. However, these new responsibilities often come with certain distrust.

To address this and allow an exchange of experiences, the employers' group of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is holding a public hearing on "Introducing a code of ethics for European employers".

The hearing also aims at facilitating a lively exchange between European employers, European companies, foundations, public authorities and other stakeholders as well as identifying best practices.
