Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainability is about balancing the ‘triple bottom line’. It is understanding the expectations of stakeholders and managing these issues in a way that is socially and environmentally responsible whilst bringing economic benefit to shareholders.
Corporations have a fundamental role to play in driving sustainable development and those that align to this vision will reap many economic and wider business benefits.
A commitment to CSR not only reduces the impact of the organisation on the environment and society, but good, or even leading practice, can significantly contribute to the success and long term sustainability of the organisation. By being mindful of potential future challenges and maximising opportunities as they arise, your organisation is best placed to succeed in a world where environmental issues are only set to deteriorate and stakeholder interest in Corporate Responsibility is only set to increase.
