Congratulations to David Hall and the team at The Cloudy Group for achieving an impressive Silver CSR Accreditation.
The Cloudy Group puts people first, which is why practices for looking after their people, their customers and their community is at the heart of what they do.
They have a rich history of supporting their local community and in the last five years have honed this socially responsible action into a more structured programme of work that has embedded these practices into their day-to-day business.
Since conducting their CSR audit for this application, they have developed a CSR Company Policy to share with their employees and have identified areas for improvement. Measures are already being put in place to drive positive change in areas under the CSR-A Four Pillars including employing a new partnership with The Green Earth Appeal.
The next CSR Accreditation Application deadline is October 30th.

What is CSR Accrediation?
Achieving CSR Accreditation is a visible testimony of excellence in CSR.
The accreditation helps you integrate social, environmental, ethical, human rights and consumer concerns into your business operations and strategy.
The establishment of a CSR Accreditation is a crucial component of a company’s competitiveness and something that should be led by the business itself. For companies, the overall aim is to achieve a positive impact on society as a whole while maximising the creation of shared value for the owners of the business, its employees, shareholders and stakeholders.
CSR Accreditation looks at your organisation’s impacts on employees, suppliers, clients and communities / charities and helps you develop an audit / report which forms the basis of your CSR road map.
