Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility

Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is defined as “a corporate initiative to assess and take responsibility for the company’s effects on the environment and impact on social welfare”. Generally a company will go above and beyond what is required by regulators and any campaign groups that may be associated with these areas.

Our Corporate Social Responsibility, CSR can sometimes be referred to Corporate Citizenship. This may be seen as doing things that enhance the environment or the social environment associated with the business and it’s surroundings.

Very often there will be costs involved with this and little or no direct financial gain for the company. The benefits are purely for others but often the benefits for the business are positive in terms of goodwill and the positive way in which the actions will be viewed. Many companies adopt this approach as these indirect benefits are noted.

It must be realised that large companies have a great deal of power and with this comes social responsibility. Companies often control millions of dollars of assets which if they are not careful can have a negative impact on the environment in terms carbon footprint amongst other things. It is also important to take into consideration the social aspect. The can be in terms of ensuring that employees and their families are looked after as well trying to employ people from the local area. In this sense they would be seen as giving something back to the community.

CSR is not something that is new, indeed it has been around since the mid 1960’s but it is not until recent years when it has significantly grown in popularity. Many critics believe that CSR is often used to self-govern and avoid tighter regulations being imposed on them by governments or other bodies. They believe that the actions that are taken are often the bare minimum that is required or are merely just window dressing. Others argue that many large businesses do actually put a lot back into local communities and reap the benefits because of this. Whatever your position is on the subject there can be little argument that CSR is here to stay.
If your business is considering improving it’s CSR it may be worth conducting an analysis of the local environment and community.

What can you do that will give something back? Obviously there is little point in doing something that is not wanted by the community so it is well worth consulting others to find out what really is required.
