Online CSR Tool for SMEs

The online CSR Tool for SMEs was launched on the 7th December 2016 by Pat Breen T.D., Minister of State for Employment and Small Business. This Tool is an initiative of the CSR Stakeholder Forum which was set up to drive the objectives of the National Plan on Corporate Social Responsibility which was published by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation in 2014.


About the CSR Hub

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a concept whereby enterprises integrate social and environmental concerns into their mainstream business operations on a voluntary basis. It is a sustainable business model which maximises the creation of shared value through collaboration with all stakeholders.

In April 2014 Ireland published its first National Plan on Corporate Social Responsibility. A CSR Stakeholder Forum was established and is convened by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation. One of the key objectives of the National Plan on CSR is to increase awareness of CSR and its benefits to business and wider society.

To help achieve this goal the Forum has set up the CSR Hub website. It is a communications initiative which brings together all the key CSR resources in Ireland. The CSR Hub aims to provide a central repository of information on CSR, accessible to all businesses interested in learning more about sustainable and responsible business practices. It includes useful contacts and guidance, as well as examples of best practice case studies.

 The CSR Hub also provides an opportunity for organisations to showcase their CSR practices in the Case Studies/Best Practice section or advertise CSR events.

If you wish to feature your CSR event or CSR activities on the CSR Hub please contact the Secretariat csrhub@djei.ie
