What is Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)?
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is where businesses and companies take responsibility for their impact on society, a concept whereby enterprises integrate social and environmental concerns into their mainstream business operations on a voluntary basis.

CSR is Good for Business!
A key driver of CSR is the impact it can have as a lever for improving competitiveness and as a means of reducing costs and creating new value. Most businesses seek to be profitable, and this can be done in a manner which creates shared value for all stakeholders. High performing organisations manage their societal, economic and environmental responsibilities in an ethical manner which benefits them, their workers and their wider local communities.
CSR can have a positive influence on the competitiveness of enterprises and it can bring real benefits in the following areas:
Winning new business and increasing customer retention;
Developing and enhancing relationships with suppliers and networks;
Attracting, retaining and maintaining a happy workforce and becoming an employer of choice;
Saving money on energy and operating costs and managing risk;
Improving your business reputation;
Providing access to investment and funding opportunities.
Customer relations: consumers are increasingly paying more attention to the environmental and social credentials of the products and services they buy and the activities of companies in the sourcing and production of the goods they sell.
