Introducing the Institute of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
Over 70 CRG members gathered on the morning of April 10 for a special preview event introducing the Institute of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (ICRS).
The Institute, the professional body for CR and sustainability practitioners being established by CRG, is now just three months away from its official launch by the Lord Mayor at Guildhall in the City of London.
Andy Cartland from Acre underlined the importance of a professional body to the development of our sector and highlighted relevant findings from the latest CSR Salary Survey.
Members then heard all about the Institute from CRG Director and Chair of the ICRS Working Group, Jennie Galbraith, including information about the support for continuing professional development it will offer, as well as details of membership options and how to join.
CRG members respond enthusiastically to the ICRS
The reception was hugely positive and the
room was buzzing with energy and excitement. We hope when you find out what’s
planned you will share the same enthusiasm for the ICRS.
The ICRS will promote and recognise the professional standing of those working in CR and sustainability roles, facilitate networking, and support our members to develop their skills.
The professional body will also act on behalf of employers, supporting them to identify and acknowledge the core competencies of CR and sustainability professionals at different stages of their careers.
We want businesses to be recruiting and retaining outstanding CR and sustainability professionals. We want those professionals to be brilliant in their roles. With 25 years of experience and scores of leading companies in membership, the Corporate Responsibility Group is uniquely placed to develop and manage a new professional body that meets these needs.
Be there at the beginning. We are at the cusp of something historic and every CR professional who joins takes us a big step forward in getting there.
