Corporate social responsibility is an issue of concern formany companies. COWI provides a broad range of CSR consultancy services and can refine or optimise customers’ existing CSR efforts.

An increasing public awareness of the effect companies and other organisations have on the environment, their employees and their communities – their corporate social responsibility – means their behaviour is under closer scrutiny than ever before.

This growing interest in corporate social behaviour is reflected in changes made to the Financial Acts, for example the Danish Financial Reporting Act in 2008, which require major companies to account for their efforts in the area of corporate social responsibility.

Strategic managerial taskCorporate social responsibility is a strategic managerial task that ensures that customers’ business operations and corporate development are supported by their CSR policies.

For customers who have yet to begin implementing CSR policies, we can help by creating the proper conceptual understanding of what CSR is about. For customers already working with CSR, we can assist in the implementation of initiatives or by evaluating the effects of CSR policies on selected stakeholders.
