Sustainability & CSR
CSR demands that a company be accountable to its stakeholders (customers, employees, suppliers, investors, regulators) for managing its social, environmental and wider economic impacts in a way that maximises the benefits and minimises the downsides. It’s about aligning the organisation’s values and behaviour for the good of society as a whole.
Like carbon reduction targets, CSR priorities can form the part of your wider sustainability goals. A sustainability goal or strategy will say how your organisation promotes people, the planet and prosperity for the long term in the way it carries out its activities. Sometimes referred to as the three-pillar strategy – economic, social, environmental – a sustainability strategy says how you meet the needs of your business today i.e. resource use, financial growth, without compromising the needs of future generations or iterations of your business to address their own needs.
Our flower diagram illustrates what existing policies and strategies may influence and become part of your sustainability strategy, which ultimately will become just “the way you do business.”
