Corporate Social Responsibilty
Last week I learned that a mechanism exists for voluntarily reporting on corporate social responsibility. Why would any business entity do this? Simple: reporting on the triple bottom line (fiscal; social; and environmental) assists a business in building goodwill and market share. Furthermore, a corporation might also undergo this process to be proactive - after all, reporting on environmental impacts may be legislated in the near future. About 23,000 corporations have filed reports at http://www.corporateregister.com/ . Hearteningly, the suggested format of the report includes energy consumption; greenhouse gas emissons; and biodiversity impacts. This gives one hope for the future .....Thank you Nick Shepard from http://www.eduvision.ca/ .
