What is CSR?
CSR is a self-regulating business model which supports organisations to be socially accountable to themselves, their 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 CSR should operate in a manner that enhances both the society and the environment, rather than contributing negatively towards them.
Why work in CSR?
CSR is valuable for both the community and the organisation as a whole; CSR activities are known to boost morale, increase retention and enable employers to feel more connected to the world around them.
CSR careers are a fulfilling way to make an impact on the world today.
What do CSR professionals do?
CSR isn’t just a part of a business model, but it’s also a way to ensure that businesses are acting ethically and responsibly.
Social responsibility aims for individuals and organisations to make the world better than they found it; and, in business, CSR professionals are often the key to making this happen.
CSR professionals keep businesses accountable and allow them to achieve their environmental and sustainability goals, while benefiting society.
