Customers and clients are increasingly looking for businesses with an ethical approach.  They want assurances that those they work with, or purchase from, have considered their social and environmental impacts.

The New Zealand Business Council for Sustainable Development (NZBCSD) has reported that “twenty eight in every 100 firms have sacked suppliers in the past year because of environmental, social or ethical behaviour”.  As anyone in business knows it’s far easier to retain a client than find a new client.

The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (
WBCSD) defines corporate social responsibility as “ the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large"

In short it’s how your business produces an overall positive impact on society.

This is where Corporate Responsibility Reporting can help.  Patterson Environmental can help you produce your report outlining your positive contributing as a good corporate citizen.  If your company has just starting looking into this then our Environmental Management Systems or our pollution prevention services would be a good place to start.
