CSR Policies and Procedures

CSR Policy Writing

This article covers CSR Policies for UK businesses. If you run or manage a medium to large enterprise, you may be asked to provide evidence of your CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) policies and procedures. It is important to understand what CSR can comprise. Also, it is useful to know how small to large companies should start the process of compiling CSR controls.

What is CSR?

CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) is a broad term to encapsulate different business functions and how they are operated to fall within the acceptable boundaries of being a good corporate citizen. These responsibilities include legality, environmental impact, Human Resources and your contribution to the local and national economy.

CSR Policy Areas

Within your CSR Policies and Procedures, we recommend covering the following areas:

  • Ensuring and maintaining the legality of your business operations. Specifically, the areas around this such as anti-bribery.
  • Due diligence on activities, partnerships, and other activities.
  • Respecting and actively promoting welfare and health and safety. Both internally and externally.
  • Having a duty of care to your clients, staff, and other stakeholders.
  • Being up to date with the latest Human Rights legislation and implementing changes to exceed recommended advice.
  • Being cognisant of the environmental impact of your operations. Also, actively having policies and procedures in place on your environmental positive activities.
  • Detailing how you contribute to society in a positive way outside of your operations. For example, through charity, sponsorship, or other means.
  • Your business vision for the future of the company. Also, how it can make a positive change to society as a whole.
