How to be a more responsible business:
Delivering a new standard for social responsibility
CSR is a leading UK based company delivering a global standard for social responsibility.
It is now more important than ever to show that we are doing everything we can to improve the world for future generations, by reducing the negative impact we have on the environment and by building a better and cohesive society. It is amazing what many of us are already doing that we don’t talk about. CSR-Accreditation provides the perfect opportunity for you to tell your positive story.
To find out more…
Social Responsibility should be for every organisation.
Increasingly the term ‘corporate’ has been challenged. This is because it excludes a large number of stakeholders, specifically the third and public sectors and because ‘corporate’ does not encompass sole traders or smaller SME’s.
It is a question of Challenging the ‘C’ by Changing its definition depending on intended audience
The ‘C’ needs to be more inClusive
We recommend that the ‘C’ has a wider focus of audience specific meanings.
- Large Companies – Corporate Social Responsibility (Private Sector)
- Sole Traders and SME’s – Company Social Responsibility (Private Sector)
- Local Authorities, Schools, Hospitals etc – Community Social Responsibility (Public Sector)
- Charities – Charitable Social Responsibility (Third Sector)
- Products & Services – Consumer Social Responsibility
- Training & Workshops – Citizen Social Responsibility
- All of Us – Collective Social Responsibility
We can then surround these meanings with a Caring, Cohesive approach Common to the wider Collective.
The new standard is defined by the CSR Four pillars of environment, workplace, community and philanthropy. This provides a structure that will help an organisation plan and act responsibly.
Social Responsibility allows you to enrich the quality of lives for all by investing in social value as an essential part of an organisations culture. This provides purpose and impact and will ensure a sustainable and profitable business. It will help to build a better world for future generations by improving the environment and ensuring a cohesive community to live and work in.
Show the World you are socially responsible by becoming CSR Accredited
CSR Accreditation is an effective way to benchmark what you are already doing with regard to social responsibility. It is a process in which you collate, measure and report on your organisation’s socially responsible activities. An Accreditation will also provide you with a roadmap for planning future activity. The Accreditation application process provides a simple template where you can record activity against our CSR Four Pillars of environment, workplace, community and philanthropy. Each CSR Pillar is designed to help you impact report on areas such as energy performance, recycling, staff engagement, health and well-being, community engagement and supporting local and national charities.
CSR Accreditation (CSR-A) is endorsed by Buckinghamshire New University and The Institute of Administrative Management (IAM)
