A website that provides advice and support for businesses interested in learning more about corporate social responsibility (CRS) and implementing sustainable and responsible business practices has been launched today.

CSRHub is an initiative of the CSR Stakeholder Forum which Richard Bruton TD, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation established last year.

The website aims to bring together the national and EU Policy framework on CSR and to act as a signpost to all of the key CSR resources in Ireland and at international level.

Speaking at the launch, Minister Bruton said: “CSR has evolved significantly over the last decade and has become a key element in the competitiveness agenda. The launch of the CSRHub is a key output of the Forum and will help to increase awareness of CSR and provide a resource to assist companies, regardless of their size, who want to learn more about CSR policies and practices.”

Brendan Jennings, chair of the CSR Stakeholder Forum, commented: “One of the key objectives of the National Plan on CSR is to increase awareness of CRS and its benefits to business and wider society. The CSRHub will be of interest to companies, both large and small, that have an interest in introducing or implementing CSR practices.”
