About us

The Institute of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (ICRS) is the UK’s professional body for Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (CRS)

Established by a group of senior CRS professionals, ICRS supports and recognises people and companies for their achievements in CRS.

The Institute is run by a Board of volunteer Directors, and supported by a Secretariat provided by Carnstone Partners Limited.

Initially established through generous funding and in-kind donations from our Founding Supporters and Corporate Responsibility Group (CRG), the Institute is now funded entirely through the subscriptions of its individual and organisational members.
