Information about Effective CSR Implementation

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a term used collectively to represent a number of related business activities, each of which has an impact on the way an organisation conducts itself, and particularly how it interacts and deals with the world around it. The main components of CSR are covered by the headings of Business Standards, including Corporate Governance, Social Standards, Environmental Standards, and Animal Welfare Standards (Animal Welfare is less commonly recognised but important in some sectors and included for the purpose of this guide). CSR places a unique obligation on those whose responsibilities have external influence, not least those responsible for managing the procurement process, external suppliers and supply chains.
