World’s best CSR companies? Think again

29th October 2008 by Alex Briggs4 Comments

This Salter-Baxter report on the world’s leading CSR reporting companies has led to increasing debate. With companies such as British-American Tobacco, Nestle and Shell at the top of the rankings, controversy is the order of the day.

Sir Jonathon Porritt, the chairman of the government’s Sustainable Development Commission, and founder of Forum for the Future, led the attack on the report,

When any company is systematically mispricing risks and systematically misallocating capital it makes no sense to talk about corporate responsibility. We’re going to have to face the fact some of the measures used to judge relative CSR performance are useless. They don’t help shareholders. They don’t help citizens. They don’t help the companies themselves.

    Yes,it is true… if any company makes any fake statement of capital or its product harms the society anyhow then there does not exist any word as CSR with the company.
    they do just try to compensate for there work nothing else is there intention.
    They use CSR to build there Brand

    Dear friends
    We feel proud of you and your concern for social responsibility. We also think for the people who are underprivileged and deprived of their rights. Even in 21st century they are deprived from their right to education. Therefore, two years back we stated a non formal school for Muslim girls of age group 3 to 14 years for those who were not going to school or dropout from the school. Sitting at home due lots of problems. We were able to mobilize more than 450 such girls and continued education of 360 such girls. We received support for this project for duration of two yeas. Since 1 April 2010 this non formal school was being somehow managed by this organization. Having exhausted our resources, we are not able to sustain this project further which is about to close due to financial problems. Again these girls will force to stay at homes and waste the prime time of their life. Now we are worried? If any corporate individually or jointly can come forward to support this school and to save the future of these 300 girls, this organization will be highly obliged. Cost approximately 22 lac per year.
