Pulse Survey Results: CRS Issues in 2016
Pulse Survey Results
We are now able to report back on the results of our survey from December 2015 in the hope that these will inform your thinking on CRS in the new year. Respondents were asked to select, from a wide range of options, what they regarded as the three most important CRS issues for the coming year.
The results make interesting reading:
- Climate change (39% of respondents), Improving the quality of communication with stakeholders (36%) and Labour and human rights (32%) were the top three choices.
- Conversely, a number of the options – including, perhaps surprisingly, Philanthropy/Community investment, Water scarcity, and Anti-bribery and corruption – were selected by the fewest respondents. Whether this indicates these issues are seen as less important and/or picked up by other functions is impossible to tell.
- Of the respondents, 60% were ICRS members (individual and organisational). There were some differences in the views of members versus those of non-members.
|Communication with stakeholders||36%||47%||18%|
|Labour and human rights||32%||41%||18%|
|Sustainable supply chains and ethical trade||25%||24%||27%|
|Corporate governance and ethics||25%||29%||18%|
|Diversity and inclusion||14%||18%||9%|
|Measuring social and economic impact||14%||18%||9%|
|Transparency around corporate taxation||11%||12%||9%|
