When a chief executive or other top-level executives and decision-makers in a large company say that they lead from the front, these days they have to be sure that this includes the promotion and implementation of principles and policies designed to ensure the promotion and implementation of policies aimed at observing their obligations towards corporate social responsibility.
But while these influential people have a key role to play in driving the cause of corporate social responsibility within any business, it must not be taken to mean that working to observe such principles does not require the involvement of everyone working for a company.
In fact, many organisations are setting out to bring the concept of corporate social responsibility to the attention of young people and get them involved with practising it at an early age. In addition to becoming acquainted with the general concept of corporate social responsibility, young people are learning how to put ethics into action to help create a better world today as well as in the future.
Encouraging young people to engage in activities which promote active citizenship is a huge part of what corporate social responsibility is about for them. Learning how to change the world of today for the better is possible through educational efforts, opportunity seeking and campaigning. Many people have begun to realise that the young people across the UK are the nations future and that it takes a vision of what will improve the world today and in the future to help young people get involved and start to take important actions towards the goals that can be achieved through corporate social responsibility.
The best place to reach the majority of young people in the UK with these messages is in their schools. Education can be used to impart values regarding corporate social responsibility in such fields as renewable energy use, and other efforts to save the environment on a local, national and global scale. In-school activities which help raise young peoples awareness of environmental issues, and fun, outside activities such as visits to waste recycling centres to demonstrate the importance of recycling items all play an important part in engaging children with the concept of social responsibility. Likewise, trips for more than 30,000 children in the UK have made them aware of how food makes the journey from the farm to their dinner plates.
From creative ideas such as a walking bus, where thousands of children walk to school and save nearly 200,000 car trips to and from school each year, to teaching children about the ways they can make their holidays more sustainable, there is no question that translating ethics into action for young people teaches them the values of preserving resources, recycling and working to combat climate change. Along with lessons in money management and responsible driving, such initiatives show young people how they can embrace corporate social responsibility and take it to the next level in the future.
Promoting the benefits as well as the obligations of corporate social responsibility is a valuable way of ensuring that its principles are carried on long into the future. Fostering environmental awareness among young people helps them see how their actions can impact on th
