Every business has an impact on society. Now, more than ever before, having a healthy impact is increasingly important. CSR is an obligation a company makes towards supporting people, society, and the environment. CSR trends may include humanitarian projects, environmental projects, and companies that go above and beyond to support their employees.
To determine a companies impact on society involves understanding the concepts to refer to a business self-regulatory measures and controls. Understanding their positive and negative contributions—an organisation can take steps to minimize their negative contributions and enhance those positive contributions. While CSR is good for businesses, it has benefits that extend far beyond the organisation itself. Companies engaged in CSR attract more employees and are better at retaining existing employees. CSR plays an important role in improving customers perception of your brand and simply improves a company’s bottom line.
CSR has the potential to make a company more competitive, lower financing costs, and increase overall economic value. Not only that, but CSR is the future. The private sector has a tremendous ability to utilise resources—and do so at a level far higher than governments.
It’s important to recognise socially responsible companies, not just to applaud their efforts, but to encourage other organisations to incorporate CSR. When we all work for impact, we can help to support a greener, more equitable future.
