CSR Ready

About the Project

Interactive Corporate Social Responsibility SME Readiness. Helping SMEs to analyse the impact of Corporate Social Responsibility on their company and to implement concrete CSR actions.

SMEs have an undisputed significance in driving Europe’s economic growth, accounting for 85% of new jobs and 66% of private sector employment. However, this economic importance is also reflected in Europe’s ecological and social footprint – unfortunately however with less positive indicators.

According to current research on CSR, it is still an area that many SMEs believe is reserved for large companies. They are not aware of the direct benefits of CSR, resulting in very low implementation rates.

The OBJECTIVES of CSR-READY therefore are clear:

  • to enable SMEs to analyse the impact of CSR on their company and to implement concrete actions
  • to increase the Social impact of SMEs by increasing the awareness for CSR
  • to professionalise training and advisory support structures and increase the CSR impact of their services

FREE Resources include:

  1. International SME CSR-Ready Impact Framework comprising an international study on CSR implementation by SMEs (challenges, benefits, best practice) and providing the framework for the subsequent Outputs.
  2. 1 CSR-Ready Curriculum and VET Package to provide business advisors with a complete toolkit for teaching CSR Readiness as part of business development programmes, in the classroom or in blended (digital) learning formats.
  3. Interactive CSR-Ready Scorecard + Action Toolkit: Based on the framework of Resource 1, we will produce a tool for the in-depth analysis of the individual CSR Readiness and the potential benefits. Based on the analysis a specific CSR Scorecard with relevant actions and related learning resources are provided.
  4. CSR-Ready Knowledge Platform and OERs adapting Resources 1, 2, 3 and supplemented with additional learning materials and relevant information, comprised into a fully operational, self-directed learning course (OERs) on a state-of-the-art digital platform.
