Abstract

Il tema della Responsabilità Sociale del Territorio o dei network territoriali volti a promuovere un modello di crescita economica sostenibile è ancora poco noto a livello internazionale. Il passaggio ad una responsabilità collettiva vede le istituzioni e le organizzazioni (pubbliche e private, profit e non profit) partecipi di un percorso di sviluppo economico, sociale e ambientale sostenibile. La responsabilità sociale di territorio si fonda sulla riscoperta di valori condivisi che gli attori economici, sociali ed istituzionali di un territorio possono rafforzare, grazie a solide reti di relazioni. In quei territori laddove gli attori “radicati”sono stimolati a cooperare per sviluppare in modo responsabile il sistema produttivo, la loro azione congiunta diventa uno strumento efficace del governo sostenibile a livello territoriale.
Internationally, the theme of territorial social responsibility, or territorial networks (CSR-oriented partnerships between local public and private partners) aimed to promote a model of sustainable economic growth, is still little noted. The movement of collective responsibility sees institutions and organisations (public and private, for profit and non-profit) participating in a form of economic development that is socially and environmentally sustainable. In these territories where deeply rooted actors are stimulated to cooperate for the responsible development of the productive system, their combined actions become an effective instrument in the sustainable government of the territory. Based on this consideration, the aim of our research is the evaluation of Italian local governmental initiatives to promote corporate social responsibility through public-private networks (specially focusing on the “Marche Region” case- study). Local governance based on the subsidiarity and the shared values of a spatial and socio-economic community can therefore be interpreted as a possible form of “managing publicly” which is focused on creating values and following the public interest, and operates through their motivations and values. This triggers a path of human governance in which participation, co-planning, and dialogue are not merely slogans but the modus operandi in actors’ processes of creating value.
