The course is based on the best–selling Taylor & Francis book ‘Do the Right Thing: The Practical, Jargon-free Guide to Corporate Social Responsibility’ which was written Stephen Asbury and Richard Ball; both of whom work for Corporate Risk Systems Limited; and both of whom regularly teach the course.
A signed copy of the book is included within the course fee for each participant.
Stakeholders of all kinds – investors, employees, partners, customers, society – are becoming more aware of the need to take a proactive approach to social responsibility. Issues such as environmental protection, climate change, human rights and organisations’ impact on the community can no longer be ignored. Learn how to minimise impacts and maximise benefits with a structured programme of responsible competitiveness – Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
As CRS wrote the book on CSR (originally for IOSH, and transferred to T&F in 2014), this course is unique.Forget baffling jargon and complicated theory. Our course helps you get to grips with improving your organisation’s environmental management, sustainability, health and safety and trading ethics with straightforward guidance and tips. You’ll understand the basics, recognise the benefits and get ready to put principles into practice from day one.
Health and safety managers, environment professionals, procurement and supply chain specialists, and other managers aiming to increase the social, environmental and economic benefits of CSR to their organisations
In-class mentoring by CSR specialists throughout
