The Corporate Social Responsibility Association of Australia, the CSRAA, represents Australian corporations who are socially minded, responsible and ethical.
The CSRAA affords recognition of Corporate Social Responsibility action and of those who have built CSR into their operations. The CSRAA was formed in 2018, evolving from an ethical Index that was originally formed in 2004.
The CSRAA provides representation for companies to communicate with government, legislators and customers. The CSR market has over US 30 trillion dollars invested globally but only AUD $600 million invested within Australia.
The CSRAA has an active network amongst ASX companies. The Association believes the ASX market value, that totals over AUD $1.9 trillion in assets, can profit with ethics in their marketing.
The CSRAA assists CSR incorporation into both the fabric of Australian companies and society. The CSRAA helps create a more responsible, equitable economy and environment. The Association helps corporates align with the values of new and current consumers to help the corporation better communicate and stay up to date with market trends. Often, they themselves have often overlooked and unappreciated their altruism.
The CSRAA offers a certification program that independently identifies CSR initiatives. The CSRAA assists with building CSR into a companies marketing and satisfies staff requirements. The survey evaluates all aspects of a companies stance including racism and the environment to produce a transparent complementary component.
