Partnering with For-Purpose Business

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a set of voluntary best practices embedded in a company’s culture and business processes that produce an overall positive impact on society. CSR is a way a company manifests its values in the ordinary course of business while holding itself socially accountable to stakeholders and the community.
