Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is an increasingly important concept used to ensure the private sector has a positive impact on communities, employees and consumers. This is especially so in geographies where basic governance, the rule of law and accountability mechanisms are lacking or limited.
Our stakeholder engagement team supports companies to understand and interact with their stakeholders, including civil society and government. We apply cutting edge methodologies in stakeholder mapping and materiality assessments that are tailored to the complex environments our clients work in.
Our research and analysis team provides the contextual data and evidence to understand and support CSR strategies and programmes.
Our training and capacity building team support staff to overcome challenges in the development of CSR strategy and delivery of programmes.
Our programme design and evaluation team supports the development of CSR strategies and programmes by monitoring and evaluating their impact, efficiency and sustainability against core objectives.
Our expertise is in helping companies with operations in conflict or fragile environments to understand their local context, develop and implement appropriate CSR strategies.
With the support of Norwegian People’s Aid, we are undertaking research on the CSR policies and practices of the oil sector in South Sudan. The objective is to understand companies’ motivations for conducting CSR, and the implementation challenges of community engagement in the newly independent country, as a first step towards supporting the oil sector, government and civil society to build a sector that benefits the economic and social development of vulnerable and conflict-affected communities.
