Rise of CSR importance shown in industry study

18 April 2017

A joint initiative has led to the launch of a survey on corporate social responsibility (CSR), highlighting its growing importance for businesses.

Designed to establish levels of engagement and identify future opportunities and challenges, the survey is being run by the Electrical Contractors' Association (ECA) and supported by the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS).

Further evidence of the rise in importance of CSR was provided by the inclusion of the Partners in Corporate Social Responsibility within the PFM Awards 2017 categories for the first time this year.

Aimed at the electrotechnical sector, which includes a significant number of FM service providers, the ECA says the survey is its next step in its quest to be regarded as a leader on the CSR agenda.

Its intention is to continue assisting engineering services businesses to project the "best possible image to stakeholders, backed by effective action".

ECA director of business services Paul Reeve said a growing number of both clients and main contractors now ask about CSR and sustainability during the procurement process "so this survey is very timely".

He further stated that although the electrotechnical sector "already has a good CSR story to tell", his association wishes to assist more companies to engage in this area, which will resonate positively with "clients, customers and other stakeholders".

Results from the survey will be published in the second quarter of this year and is open to ECA members until 1 May.
