What is Corporate Social Responsibility?


Corporate social responsibility is a self-regulating business model which supports an organisation to be socially accountable to itself, its stakeholders and the general public.

By practising corporate social responsibility, organisations have to be conscious of the impact they are having across all parts of society, including economic, social and environmental.

An organisation that engages in corporate social responsibility should operate in a manner that enhances both the society and the environment, rather than contributing negatively towards them.

Why is corporate social responsibility important?



Corporate social responsibility is valuable for both the community and the organisation as a whole; its activities are known to boost morale, increase retention and enable employers to feel more connected to the world around them.
Corporate sustainability jobs can not only help more socially responsible brands achieve their own ambitions, but a corporate social responsibility job can also help companies actively work on solving social and environmental issues too.
