Blog: Leonie BarrieCSR survey

Leonie Barrie | 5 June 2007

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is one of the hottest issues in the fashion industry just now – but did you know there is no accurate measure by which companies can benchmark their views and performance against their competitors?

The first Global Survey of CSR activities in over 1,500 fashion and lifestyle companies from 10 countries is being conducted by CSR Asia and 3P and they’ve asked just-style to help in finding companies to participate in the study.

The results will be presented at the CSR Asia summit in November 2007, and should help companies evaluate and compare their strengths and weaknesses on social and environmental issues. The data will also provide a global snapshot of CSR in 2007, and benchmark individual companies against industry-wide perceptions and performance.

And in case you’re worried, all information will be kept strictly confidential and no company will be named in the public report.

Most importantly, the idea of the survey is not only to provide a one-time snapshot but is expected to be an annual exercise with an increasing number of participants.
