Top retailers failing to form clear CSR policies

Too
few of Britain’s best retailers are forming clear Corporate Social
Responsibility (CSR) policies according to a survey of the top 60 stores.

The
research found that only one in four of the top chains had well defined
policies that recognised and met responsibilities to the communities they
operate in.

The
survey also revealed that:


Almost half (47 per cent) made no acknowledgement of CSR


Only 14 out of 60 published clear community policies


16 per cent acknowledged their responsibilities but gave no examples of local
community initiatives

The
survey was conducted by CSR consultants Corporate Re:Action and director Nick
Corble warned that consumers were increasingly looking at CSR when deciding
where to shop.
