Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

In today’s rapidly changing world, companies' responsibilities extend far beyond the statutory obligation to comply with legislation. Corporations now must consider the wider impact that they have on customers, employees, shareholders, communities and the environment across all aspects of their operations.

Our CSR Forum attracts interest from across BritCham/CBBC's membership, from those working directly in a CSR-related field to those with a more personal interest in global and environmental issues. It looks at a wide range of areas including climate change, energy, development and sustainability.
