In the guest post below, Julie Urlaub, Founder and Managing Partner at Taiga Company, recommends strategies to jump start your CSR programs.
Santa’s making a list and he’s checking it twice. He’s wondering if your business has been naughty or nice. Has your organization delayed business sustainability strategies to see how the market responds before taking action? Has management been afraid to commit resources and capital to sustainability initiatives? Or, has your businesses harnessed the organizational power of sustainability to deliver top and bottom line results?
What is on Santa’s CSR checklist? Diversity programs, wellness programs, sustainable procurement, telecommuting, remote commuting, investment recovery, community and stakeholder engagement, water, carbon, energy, waste management, sustainability concepts of reduce/ reuse/ recycle fair trade and commitment to renewable energy. How do you fair? Naughty or Nice? Not sure? With 14 days left before Christmas, there’s still time to get on Santa’s Nice list.
