Don’t Let The Economy Shut Down Your CSR Initiatives

by | May 11, 2008

CRO has compiled a list of ways companies can stay responsible during an economic slowdown:

  • Make corporate responsibility initiatives a bigger priority with more resources and it will be difficult for them to fade away.
  • Prioritize the initiatives that can be completed with the lowest cost and the least risk.
  • Collaborate on CSR projects with other departments and share the costs.
  • With the battle for customers becoming more fierce, a downturn is the time to ramp up your investment in CR efforts and spend money on PR and marketing since you might be able to get a better deal from vendors.
  • Be trend-conscious and keep a close eye on your competitors CSR moves, as well as where federal, state and municipal policy and regulations are are headed.
  • Remember, what goes down must go up, if companies do their corporate responsibility homework and keep integrating sustainability as a way of doing business, their efforts should pay off.
