Engaging in Corporate Responsibility

An Introductory Workshop

This introductory workshop will help you see how your business can benefit from implementing CR as part of your core approach to a profitable and sustainable business. Rolls-Royce will present on the employment standards, H&S, environmental and ethical requirements they are placing on their supply chain and you’ll hear from sustainability consultants, IMS Consulting on how to get started on a CR strategy.

Although Corporate Responsibility (CR) is a widely recognised theme, many manufacturers see it as something that only applies to large companies. For others it’s seen as a nebulous subject with uncertain or intangible business benefits.

However, those companies are underestimating how a CR strategy can help them reduce business pressures and achieve long-term growth. In particular a successful CR strategy can help you to:

  • Develop more robust customer relationships and improve sales
  • Meet ever more demanding tender requirements
  • Attract and retain the right skills
  • Manage energy and raw material prices

These are just some of the many pressures facing UK manufacturers that can be relieved with a strategic approach to CR.
