Analysis of the Environmental Corporate Social Responsibility of Hungarian Small and Mediumsized Enterprises in the Era of Coronavirus

Published Online: 12 Jul 2022
Page range: 1 - 5

Abstract

Abstract

Environmental protection is a very important segment of our lives. If we do not pay enough attention to it there will be serious problems in the near future. The goal of this study was to present current practices and approaches to environmental aspects of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the case of some Hungarian small and medium-sized enterprises. During the research a questionnaire survey was conducted. Based on the results, the coronavirus crisis had a significant impact on the environmental activity of Hungarian small and medium-sized enterprises. Small and medium-sized enterprises have been hit hardest by the 1st and 2nd wave of the coronavirus crisis. According to the surveyed data, there is a strong correlation between the coronavirus crisis and the environmental targets. Due to the financial difficulties, Hungarian enterprises had to reduce their budget for supporting environmental protection.

Understanding and Promoting the ‘Leaving No One Behind’ Ambition Regarding the Sustainable Development Agenda: A Review

Published Online: 12 Jul 2022
Page range: 6 - 15

Abstract

Abstract

With the adoption of the 2015–2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the United Nations (UN) Member States pledged to ensure that no one would be left behind. This article highlights the essentials (meaning, importance, history, framework, pillars, related key studies, and role of key actors) in respect of the ‘Leaving No One Behind’ (LNOB) pledge. The review shows that the LNOB pledge has three-pronged strategic development imperatives: (i) to end poverty in all its forms, (ii) to stop the discrimination and inequality that have resulted in unequal outcomes for the disadvantaged population, and (iii) to reach the furthest behind first. The framework for achieving the ambition is anchored on implementing the SDGs, ‘empowering the left-behind by ensuring their meaningful participation in decision-making; and enforcing equity-focused policies, and interventions with a dedicated budget to support rights-holders and duty-bearers to address the deprivations of the people left behind. The UN, Governments, Businesses, Civil Society Organisations and other actors should collaborate to translate the mantra into reality by addressing the pervasive societal issues of poverty, inequality, and discrimination. Germane to achieving the LNOB ambition are reliable disaggregated people-centered data, research, and stakeholder/actor commitment to the pledge.

Will Changes in the Common Agricultural Policy Bring a Respectful Approach to Environment in EU Countries?

Published Online: 12 Jul 2022
Page range: 21 - 25

Abstract

Abstract

Under the 2014–2020 Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), the existence of two pillars is maintained and the link between them is strengthened. Regulation (EU) No. 1307/2013 provides a new system of direct payments. The system consisting of the decoupling of agricultural aid from production (partial decoupling) and the provision of general income support, which came into force in 2003, is being transformed into a system in which single farm payments are replaced by a seven-component system of multi-purpose payments: basic payment per hectare, greening component, additional payment to young farmers, redistributive payment, additional income support in areas with natural handicaps, coupled support, voluntary simplified scheme for small farmers. There are three measures related to greening payments: crop diversification: the farmer must grow at least two different crops; preservation of existing permanent grasslands; the creation of an area of ecological interest corresponding to at least 5% of the arable land of a holding over 15 hectares (excluding permanent grassland and perennial crops). The new CAP aims to increase agriculture‘s contribution to the EU‘s environmental and climate objectives, provide more focused support for smaller farmers and allow Member States greater flexibility to adapt measures to local conditions.

Analysis of the Centre-Periphery Relations – Focus on the Competitiveness of Hungarian Districts

Published Online: 12 Jul 2022
Page range: 33 - 40

Abstract

Abstract

Spatial economic analysis, including research on regional development and competitiveness, has long been a high priority area in the social sciences, both domestically and globally. Several dominant international models relate changes in regional competitiveness to the volume of investment, physical capital and improvements in the income situation of citizens. This suggests that the promotion and implementation of investment has the greatest impact on regional development, as it generates technological innovation and innovation in order to raise the skills of the available labour force, employ human resources at higher wages and thus raise living standards. On the basis of these findings, our study examines the level of development of the domestic LAU1 districts on the basis of their complex (social, economic and infrastructural) level of development, their income situation and their economic competitiveness.
