Business leaders are continually challenged to answer how the organizations they serve and contribute to address the myriad of economic, social, and environmental issues that face us today. There is growing societal expectation of corporate leaders to take a stand or engage in outright activism regarding important cultural topics. In many instances, they are being compelled to provide public statements clearly outlining their beliefs on subjects such as immigration, gender equality, gun control, and their plans to fight climate change. For this reason, corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs are becoming a critical component of corporate strategy and governance.
CSR programs take into consideration how a business operates in its social, economic, and environmental context. Company leaders face increasing pressure from political activists, social media, customers, employees, and communities to choose a side and make investment decisions based on the issues held dear by these individuals and groups.
In our ever-changing culture, companies are using their influence to drive change in sustainable and moral business practices such as energy procurement and consumption, and they are holding suppliers responsible for environmental performance, workplace safety, and basic human rights. By proactively acknowledging the ambiguities that impact our world, you are inherently recognizing that CSR directly affects long-term business profitability and viability.
Going green isn’t a buzzword, it is a measurable and deliberate way of conducting business. By committing to moral, economic, social, and environmental principles—and communicating those principles to the marketplace through comprehensive CSR programs—we can create the change we wish to see, become faithful stewards of our limited resources, and be a sustainable force for good.
Our programs are designed to create long-term business value by implementing environmentally and socially conscious strategies that position your organization for future success. These programs take into consideration how a business operates in its social, economic, and environmental contexts.
Corporate social responsibility is about establishing your corporate philosophy and determining how you will contribute to the collective good of society and to your company’s bottom line. These programs focus on:
- Supply chain
- Transportation and logistics
- Products and services
