The concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) covers a broad range of topics and can mean something quite different across different industries. The Financial Times defines CSR as ‘a business approach that contributes to sustainable development by delivering economic, social and environmental benefits for all stakeholders’.
In a nutshell, this means creating a business that not only does no harm, but also strives to enhance the local environment and community. It’s all about your triple bottom line.
During your initial consultation we will gain an understanding of your business ethos and existing corporate strategies so that your environmental & social strategy is in sync with your organisation’s brand and ethos. Working with you, we will encapsulate the initiatives you currently have in place as well as building on these with ongoing development and continuous improvement. We can support on a range of initiatives including:
- Waste management
- Energy reduction
- Setting and tracking environmental targets
- Employee engagement
- Carbon offsets & neutrality
- Compliance with environmental legislation
- Environmental certifications
Although enhanced reputation is certainly a benefit of embedding environmental and social responsibility within your corporate strategies, there are a range of other corporate benefits that can be realised as well, including:
- Operational cost savings through improved resource use
- Attracting and maintaining top talent within the business
- Increased sales & customer loyalty
- Improved financial performance
- Enhanced legal compliance
