Hold a Charity Fundraiser

When you run a business, you quickly begin to network with a whole host of other business owners. You will generally collaborate in the interest of your business’ progression and to further your own profits.

Alternatively, invest in some customized bricks from - people can purchase these to be built into one of your buildings with their name or business name engraved into them.

Implement CSR Clauses Into Your Contracts

When you run a business, you’re likely to draw up all sorts of contracts on a regular basis. These contracts will generally outline terms and conditions between your company and another company that you intend to carry out business with.

Generally speaking, terms and conditions drawn into the contracts serve the purpose of protecting you and your finances. However, CSR clauses, short for “corporate social responsibility” clauses can be drawn into contracts too!

These serve the purpose of ensuring that businesses you are engaging with uphold the same high moral values as you do. CSR clauses can pertain to environmental friendliness, workers conditions, or other factors.

Incorporating them into your contracts will help to make other companies be good to the planet and their workers and can be legally upheld. Most collaborators will agree to these clauses and improve their business process, if only for the sake of working with you.
