Corporate Social Responsibility makes a difference.

What is Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)?

Corporate Social Responsibility (also known by its acronym, CSR) is an initiative or concept that organisations choose to implement in their business, and then self-regulate ongoing.

The purpose of a CSR initiative is to improve a companies environmental, social and economic impact on the world around them. This is done through actively engaging in, or investing in worthy actions, causes and philosophies.

In other words it is your company choosing to take part in positive activities that help the world around us, even when you are not obliged to. It’s about giving back.

Why is CSR important?

Society is becoming more aware of their impact on the world around them. With our access to unprecedented information at the touch of our finger tips, social and economic issues around the globe are highlighted in ways never before seen.

Your shareholders, staff, customers and stakeholders all are aware of these.

What kind of company they associate with and work for is becoming more of a factor in peoples life choices. Increasingly customers are actively looking for companies who can demonstrate that they understand their impact socially, environmentally or ethically and those customers will gravitate to companies who share the same values they do.

What is CSR not?

This has always been a difficult question to answer. However here are a few things a true CSR initiative is not.

  • A pet project from a handful of senior executive level individuals, that does resonate with the wider organisation.
  • Propaganda to be used solely for the purpose of advertising or branding.
  • Token gestures that benefit only one side or neither.

None of the above demonstrate the genuine potential CSR has to enhance an organisation, engage it’s staff and make a real sustainable contribution to the world we live in. True corporate social responsibility is about making a difference.
