What we're about

This group is for professionals in the London area who work in CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) or related areas, such as Corporate Responsibility, Sustainability, Corporate Citizenship, or fair trade.

We share CSR ideas in a non-corporate, informal environment that promotes open discussion and lively debate. Bimonthly meetings focus on live topics in the CSR world, with guest speakers also identifying practical measures that CSR professionals can take.

We also encourage CSR professionals in our group to meet each other and build their networks.

We follow the formats of the allied CSR Meetup Groups in Geneva, Amsterdam, New York, Mauritius (Port Louis), Athens and Washington DC and work closely with these groups, sharing ideas and resources with the ultimate aim of generating new thinking on what best practice CSR might look like, both in theory and in practice.
