Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainability is about balancing the triple bottom line of profit, people and planet. It is understanding the expectations of your stakeholders and managing these issues in a way that is socially and environmentally responsible whilst bringing economic benefit to shareholders. Of course, this approach not only reduces the impact of your organisation on the environment and society, but good, or even leading practice, can significantly contribute to the success and long term sustainability of your organisation. By being mindful of potential future challenges and maximising opportunities as they arise, your organisation is best placed to succeed in a world where environmental issues are only set to deteriorate and stakeholder interest in Corporate Responsibility is only set to increase.
This course will look at the business case for sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The aim is to equip learners with the knowledge and skills to conduct a materiality review and develop a sustainability strategy for their organisation.
