 What is CSR Accreditation – Showing what good looks like

CSR Accreditation is a great way to pull together what you are already doing with regard to CSR. It helps you easily report on your organisations sustainable and community engagement. The Accreditation application process provides a simple and straight forward template where you can record activity against the Four Pillar framework of environment, workplace, community and philanthropy. Each Pillar is designed to help you audit and impact report on areas such as energy performance, recycling, staff engagement, health and well-being, community engagement and supporting local and national charities.

The CSR Accreditation addresses ESG Compliance, Net Zero, building a culture that empowers employees to do environmental and social good, attract new talent, win tenders improve brand reputation and report on non-financial disclosure.
