CSR Europe has launched its website toolbox on different aspects of corporate social responsibility. It is a huge resource for companies seeking information, standards, policies and practices in a number of key areas of responsible business practice.
The content is the outcome of a series of CSR "laboratories" that were carried out by different working groups of companies and other organisations on a series of different issues. The projects were meant to "explore innovative models of business-stakeholder co-operation and produce practical tools for tackling CSR challenges".
The content of the toolbox is grouped under five themes which cover business models, communication, sustainable practices, skills, and workplace issues.
So, for example, the section focusing on sustainable practices (headed 'Sustainable Production and Consumption - Treading Lightly') includes tools on eco-efficiency, a focus on the financial sector, and sustainable marketing. It gives information on best practices on the environment and mainstreaming CSR, and gives news updates on the same.

2002 was a year that inherited a good many rumbles from the previous year. The full implications of the corporate governance debacles of Enron and Worldcom were still working their way through the system, but awareness was high that all the rules had changed. The only thing people didn't know was just how far, or how quickly, things would go.
Individuals were called to account through the year, and many articles and enquiries opined about the long term implications for business in general, and corporate social responsibility in particular. Easy comments that Enron - which had maintained a profile of socially responsible community involvement - discredited the CSR movement gave way to a better considered understanding of the breadth of the elements that made up a responsible business.
Integrity, ethics and corporate governance had to be the complementary characteristics that supported business programs to improve impact on society. Either without the other gave a false picture. This was a lesson that emerged from the speeches and articles of business leaders and legislators through the year.
