Terms of Reference for CSR Network Members

Background
‘Towards Responsible Business’ Ireland’s National Plan on Corporate Social Responsibility 2017-2020 was published in June 2017. The CSR Stakeholder Forum was established by the then Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation to help drive implementation of the Actions in the Plan. One of the key objectives of the current CSR National Plan is to raise awareness of, and drive further business engagement with, CSR in Ireland.

Informal CSR Network
The CSR Network is an informal network that provides an opportunity for businesses and organisations active in CSR to support and stay in touch with Forum activities.

CSR Network members are invited to:
· Drive awareness of CSR within their organisation;
· Share best practice CSR from their own organisation through the CSR Network and through the Forum’s various communications channels, including the csrhub.ie website and social media;
· Actively share CSR Forum related CSR messages online and offline
· Attend the annual CSR CEO/Leaders Breakfast event and continue to receive updates on the Forum’s activities through the CSR newsletter.

The Forum may, from time to time, call on CSR Network members to support specific aspects of CSR Forum’s work on implementation of the National Plan on Corporate Social Responsibility.
