In recent years, there has been a shift in the system of values in society. A good quality of life is increasingly associated with non-materialistic values such as health, a clean environment and human rights.
Companies are regarded as corporate citizens and, therefore, stakeholders have become increasingly interested in their ethical, social and environmental performance. High quality and low prices are no longer the only preconditions for business success. Companies must take the local and global impact of their activities into consideration if they want to maintain their good reputation.
As part of the global Ernst & Young network of professionals in sustainable development, we help our clients to deal with changing market situations and to profit from them.
Our clients’ areas of activity and stages of corporate social responsibility (CSR) implementation are very different; therefore, the issues important to them also differ significantly. We take an individual approach with each client and adjust our proven methodology to their needs using our local knowledge in combination with global best practices.
We help companies that are at the very beginning of their CSR strategy implementation to identify what is material to them and how to proceed. We also help clients that are regarded as CSR top practitioners to review their CSR management system. We can provide them with assurance on, or the benchmarking of, their CSR report. The services we offer include:
