Annual State of Corporate Social Responsibility

The Australian Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility (ACCSR) have opened their annual survey on the state of CSR in Australia for 2011/2012.

Now in its fourth year, and one of the largest ongoing CSR projects in the world, the annual survey has provided deep insights into the practices and trends of corporate social responsibility and sustainability practices and attitudes in Australia.

The survey is by invitation only, but for any questions you can contact ACCSR’s research consultant Collette Einfeld at coletteeinfeld@accsr.com.au or phone (03) 9826 1767.

State of CSR for 2010/2011

Findings from the latest State of CSR in Australia Annual Review show that although there is growth of CSR as a management practice, take-up of CSR is hampered by organisational buy-in and commitment.

And although existing CSR practitioners are becoming more effective, fulfilling potential impact is hampered by the need to be multi-disciplinary, working across many silos of a business.

Some organisations have stood out in the CSR Top 20 for outstanding practices and effectiveness, including BHP Billiton, Westpac Banking Corporation, CPA Australia, State Trustees, Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Charities Aid Foundation, Mission Australia, National Breast Cancer Foundation and The Smith Family.
