Cambridge will be the site for a brand new Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) forum, aiming to promote ethical trading and fair standards across the region.
Corporate Social Responsibility is defined as a commitment to conduct business in an ethical and fair way whilst contributing to local economic development and improving the quality of life of their employees. It has been a primary focus for forward-thinking businesses across the UK during the past five years.
The Cambridge Responsibility Forum aims to bring together a wide range of local businesses so they can share their thoughts and best practices ideas at an open day at Clare College on Monday 18th October.
Kathie Neal, director of development at local charity SOS Children UK and co-organiser of the event explained the huge responsibility many companies many companies have to their local community: “Some companies get involved in CSR because they have to, others because of staff or customer pressure, and some because they have a chief executive with a terrific sense of social responsibility across the entire product chain, including their staff.”
To book a place the event, please email Cara McLean.
