Being Better, Becoming Better – Corporate Social Responsibility Accreditation
01494 444 494
CSR Accreditation – Showing what good looks like
It is now more important than ever to show that we are doing everything we can to improve the world we live in for future generations, not only by reducing the negative impact we have on the environment, but by building a better and cohesive society. It’s amazing what we are already doing that we don’t talk about. CSR-A provides the perfect opportunity to tell your positive story.
What is CSR Accreditation
CSR Accreditation is a great way to pull together what you are already doing with regard to CSR. It helps you easily report on your organisations sustainable and community engagement. The Accreditation application process provides a simple and straight forward template where you can record activity against the CSR Four Pillars of environment, workplace, community and philanthropy. Each CSR Pillar is designed to help you audit and impact report on areas such as energy performance, recycling, staff engagement, health and well-being, community engagement and supporting local and national charities.
Doing Good is Good Business
This audit then becomes an invaluable CSR, CR, ESG policy which you can use to show all your audiences that you are a caring and responsible organisation. The CSR Accreditation Mark can be displayed on your website, in your reception and throughout your literature, proudly showing that your organisation has been independently recognised for its CSR endeavours.
