Call it corporate social responsibility (CSR), corporate responsibility (CR), responsible business or whichever term you prefer; it is not a "nice to have". It cannot be a siloed programme isolated from the rest of a business. Reputation Institute data shows that responsible business practices make people 9.4% more likely to purchase a firm's products or services, 8.1% more likely to work for that company and 7.7% more likely to invest in it. And it’s not alone - plenty of other sources point to the need to make corporate responsibility a mission-critical element to business operations.
