New Directory Promotes Corporate Responsibility Principles and Practices

CSRwire has launched the CSR Directory: Resources for Promoting Global Business Principles and Best Practices, a directory of worldwide organizations working on all aspects of corporate social responsibility.

The interactive directory provides contact information for more than 700 organizations, with listings of the senior leaders and websites for each organization. Searchable by organization and key contact, the directory provides cross-referenced entries in 25 categories and a listing of all organizations by country.

“Since the early 1990s, the business community and many organizations around the world have taken up the challenges and opportunities of working together," noted US EPA official Michael Kane, who created the directory. "Users of this directory will find hundreds of organizations promoting business principles and best practices across a wide range of issues from 62 countries in all regions of the world.”

"The scope and depth of Michael Kane's directory is truly impressive,” commented Georg Kell, Executive Head, Global Compact. “The directory is extremely valuable as a resource and tool, allowing people and organizations from all over the world to learn about one another and build important connections and alliances. The fact that the directory is also continuously updated makes it all the more meaningful."

Aron Cramer, Vice President of Business for Social Responsibility, said, "This directory is a valuable tool for mapping the stakeholder world in which we live. This directory has long been a resource for anyone working in the field of CSR, and its wider availability undoubtedly will help to spark more dialogue and collaboration."

“Mr. Kane and CSRwire have provided an unprecedented gift to concerned investors, academics, the corporate world, and nongovernmental organizations through the publication of this remarkable reference guide,” noted Timothy Smith, Senior Vice President of Walden Asset Management and President of the Social Investment Forum.

CSRwire is a service of SRI World Group of Brattleboro, Vermont. SRI World Group provides resources and tools for socially responsible investors and corporations.
