17 Oct Be Ethical Training partners with CSR Accreditation to help the nation’s businesses grow more ethically
Be Ethical Training has joined forces with global company, CSR Accreditation to help businesses become more ethically responsible by developing and embedding their social responsibilities.
The new partnership will support organisations in recognising the importance of CSR in developing their brand reputation and increasing their social impact in their local communities and across the planet.
When an organisation is committed to structuring and formalising its responsible activities as part of an ESG (environmental, social and governance) framework, it is known to help maximise competitor advantage.
Be Ethical Training aims to help businesses become accountable for their ethical activities through this collaboration, which includes a series of free webinars and panel discussions with top industry experts.
Speaking about their mission, co-founder and director of Be Ethical Training, Caroline Swailes, said:
“Having worked with businesses that integrate and champion a culture of responsibility across their operations, we see first-hand the importance of accountability and engagement in making CSR a success.
“This new partnership is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the value of responsible business and complement one another’s training to spread our message far and wide.”
Richard Collins, CEO of Buckingham-based CSR Accreditation, believes the partnership is a step in the right direction to building a better world:
“CSR Accreditation is delighted to be working in partnership with Be Ethical Training.
“We believe that together we can make a really positive difference with regard to social responsibility.
“The training is the perfect way for businesses to develop a CSR solution that not only addresses ESG compliance but helps to build a better world to live and work in.”
Fellow co-founder and director of Be Ethical Training, Heather de Groot, added:
“Partnering with CSRA was an obvious fit. We’re both striving towards the same goal of making all business responsible.
“Through our webinars, panel discussions and workshops with Richard and his team, we aim to bring a business community together, to help see the value of integrating CSR into their business as usual.
“There are thousands of businesses who have created fantastic programmes and legacies when it comes to ethical responsibilities. We want to empower these businesses to map, measure and report on their impact and success.”
Recognising the value of their own social responsibility, Caroline and Heather have pledged to donate £25,000 to North West social enterprise, Girls Out Loud, which helps teenage girls in the UK to find their voice, by developing their confidence, emotional resilience and self-esteem.
Caroline and Heather were inspired to help businesses do better during their time at Bibby Line Group, where they developed and championed a successful employee engagement programme, supporting 5,000+ employees in 20 countries to raise in excess of £6 million for charitable causes.
