CSR update from Article 13, the expert advisor on issues of corporate responsibility and governance.
June 30, 2006 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) It seems that not a week can pass without media coverage of a new report on climate change. In the UK, all the political parties have now identified it as a major issue for people, the environment and the economy. With the issues now inescapable, Article 13’s CSR expert view offers three key questions to think about in finding the path to innovation and value in climate change.
In Article 13’s View from the Field, Sir John Egan from Severn Trent examines how his industry, the business of water management, is seeking to understand its special role and responsibility as it feels the impact of a changing climate earlier than many other business sectors.
The accompanying briefing papers summarise some of the research and thinking that Article 13 has been carrying out over the past two years in the area of climate change and how the issue can be turned into opportunity. It also presents an assessment of the best and worst companies in facing up to climate change, as ranked by Ceres, a US investor coalition.
This website feature includes two CSR best practice case studies. DuPont, a giant chemical company with research and development at its core and amongst the highest ranking in the Ceres’ assessment and the Venus company, a small catering and retail business in the South West, which is creating business value from CSR.
CBI and Article 13 continue to profile companies who are doing innovative work in CSR…The latest batch of CBI CSR case studies are now live on the site, and include British Land, Corus Group, First Group and GKN.
