A step by step approach to drafting a CSR policy for your company
Do you know exactly what your CSR activities are? Or how to anchor CSR into your core activities? Many SME companies carry out more CSR activities than they think! If you put this on paper and communicate it to your (potential) customers, you will increase your chances on the market!
The government attaches great importance to CSR and wants companies receiving governmental grants to have a CSR policy. This is also in your own interest because you can use it to achieve an advantage over your competitors. A CSR policy offers significant business opportunities! Clearly defined goals will help you take further steps in the field of sustainable and ethical management.
A CSR policy is not set in stone. It can always be refreshed and adjusted according to developments in your company, market, technology or society.
The CSR policy tool aims to help you gain insight into your current CSR activities, assess its value and determine what other CSR activities you would like to employ. The CSR policy tool is easy to apply and focuses on the return on investments of your CSR initiatives. It allows you to better ensure the long-term gains and the continuity of your company.
The CSR policy tool is specifically designed for the Private Sector Investment (PSI) programme of NL EVD International. The policy tool is based on the OECD guidelines and the ISO26000 implementation guidelines. Following the instructions of the CSR policy tool, you will be guided logically and step by step through a process leading to a realistic and workable CSR policy. The result of the policy tool is a complete CSR policy, including an action plan with tasks, responsibilities and a communication strategy. You can submit this to NL Agency as a required CSR policy in Result 1.
