Organisational membership

As an ICRS Organisational Member you will be part of a growing community of organisations with a shared commitment to CR and sustainability.  Here is the full list of our current organisational members.

Membership is open to all organisations including corporates, SMEs, charities, academic institutions and not-for-profits. As an organisational member everyone within your organisation is entitled to the membership benefits. In addition, Organisational Members benefit from five Affiliate memberships, opening access to the benefits and resources of individual membership.

Patron membership

Patron membership is available for organisations wishing to show an extra level of support for the CRS profession and also the next generation of CRS practitioners.  In addition to your recognition as a Patron you receive all the benefits of organisational membership plus five individual memberships at any level*, giving you access to the host of benefits and resources available to Individual members.

*Excluding 'Fellow'
