Corporate social responsibility (CSR) starts with developing a sound CSR policy. In this, you indicate as an organization in which ways you take into account the social and ecological impact of various business processes, and what you do to improve this impact.
Many companies and organizations struggle with developing and implementing an appropriate and effective CSR policy. Finding a balance between creating sustainable impact on the one hand and commercial performance on the other is often a major challenge. At Empact we are happy to take on that challenge together with your organization. Together we determine the ideal course, so that you can sail towards a successful and sustainable future autonomously.
Customized CSR policy
Every organization is unique and therefore interwoven with society in a unique way. This means that the social and ecological impact of every company is also different and can be improved in a different way. The development of CSR policy often revolves around sustainability issues such as: ‘how can we reduce the carbon footprint of our supply chain?’ or ‘how do we make our premises energy neutral?’ But health, safety, fairness, inclusiveness and circularity are also important. important CSR themes.
Before we formulate CSR goals and a strategy, we examine together what suits your organisation, your ambitions, your broader vision and the sector in which you operate. Do you want to improve the health and productivity of your employees? Want to become a forerunner in the field of sustainability? Make your chain completely circular? Striving for a safer and more inclusive work environment? We help you discover which form of creating social impact suits you and what you can go for as an organization or company.
Setting CSR goals and developing an impact strategy
Then we will set long-term goals: dots on the horizon that determine the course for the future. So the big picture. These goals are clearly formulated and framed, so that it is clear to everyone within the organization where you want to go. Based on these goals, we develop an impact strategy, with realistic sub-goals, measurable KPIs and targeted recommendations. That way you not only know where you want to go, but also how to get there.
Implementation of CSR strategy
Implementation is an integral part of any CSR policy. In other words: how do we get from strategy to execution and how do we concretely change our processes, so that we can achieve our (sub) goals? We know from experience that one thing in particular is essential, namely creating (internal) support. We also help you with supporting and activating employees, so that you can go for it together.
