The SASAC attaches great importance to social responsibility in central SOEs, and has been promoting their CSR fulfillment through policy guidance, management improvement, communication enhancement and other aspects. Since the Guidelines to the State-owned Enterprises Directly under the Central Government on Fulfilling Corporate Social Responsibilities was released in 2008, it has been promoting central SOEs to fulfill social responsibility. The year 2012 signaled the first year of China’s CSR management, when the SASAC included social responsibility management as one of the 13 key measures to improve corporate management of central SOEs, marking CSR management as an important part of corporate management improvement.
