A recent YouGov study has found that 87% of Australians think businesses have a responsibility to do social good, suggesting that CSR remains an important consideration. Interestingly, 58% thought that businesses should ensure that their supply chain does not harm the environment, highlighting the need for rigour in our procurement practices.
A high number of respondents also indicated that they would be more likely to use or recommend businesses that gave to charity, or undertook volunteer or pro bono work. At AusLSA, we think that this demonstrates the value of reporting beyond our environmental impacts only.
