The CR Council (CRC) was founded in March 2012 with the aim of advancing environmental, social and governance matters at RTL Group. In January 2016, Oliver Fahlbusch, the Group’s Executive Vice President of Corporate Communications & Marketing became its chairman.
The CRC meets three times a year to work on topics such as environmental protection, ethics and compliance, gender equality and diversity, corporate governance, and transparency – and their implications for human resources, investor relations and communications. It comprises representatives from RTL Group’s Corporate Centre in Luxembourg with expertise in these areas.
In March 2014, RTL Group expanded its CR task force Group-wide, to create the RTL Group CR Network, which comprises CR representatives from RTL Group’s profit centres as well as the Corporate Centre. The CR Network meets once a year to share knowledge and best practice, allowing the CRC to gain a greater understanding of local initiatives.
