What is CSR Accreditation?
Achieving CSR Accreditation is a visible testimony of excellence in Social Responsibility. The accreditation helps you integrate social, environmental, ethical, human rights and consumer concerns into your business operations and strategy.
A CSR Accreditation can be used to:
- Deliver the information required for ESG (Environmental Social Governance) reporting
- Identify the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) which you may wish to support.
- Write a Social Value policy
- Reduce negative impact on climate change – Race to Zero
- Produce a Social Impact Report.
- Enrich, enable and engage employees, shareholders and stakeholders.

The CSR Accreditation is an effective way to benchmark what you are already doing with regard to social responsibility. It is a process in which you collate, measure and report on your organisation’s socially responsible activities. An accreditation will also provide you with a roadmap for planning future activity.
This is a fully holistic and inclusive approach that allows for all organisations – private, public and third sector and is for all sizes from sole traders to large corporations. It employs a white paper approach that promotes an organisation’s individuality.
The application process provides a simple and straightforward template where you record activity against the Social Responsibility ‘Four Pillars’ of environment, workplace, community and philanthropy. Each Social Responsibility Pillar is designed to help you impact report on areas such as energy performance, recycling, staff engagement, health and well-being, community engagement and support for local and national charities.
