Corporate social responsibility

Corporate social responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the term used to describe how businesses take account of their economic, social and environmental impacts in the way they operate.

CSR can offer real benefits to the residents of Thurrock and we are keen to see local businesses considering how they can 'maximise the positive' and 'minimise the negative' impact of their operations.

Donate time, skills or money to local organisations

Thurrock has a wide range of voluntary and community organisations that provide a huge range of worthwhile services to the local community. Many organisations could benefit from corporate donations of time, skills or money.

Thurrock CVS can help you identify local groups working in specific locations and fields of interest.
