Business and organisations do not operate in a vacuum. Their relationship to the society and environment in which they operate is a critical factor in their ability to continue to operate effectively. It is also increasingly being used as a measure of their overall performance.
At Pine Court Housing Association we take Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) extremely seriously and recognise that we can play an important role in contributing towards growth and sustainability.
We work within the ISO 26000 framework for Social Responsibility which provides guidance on how businesses and organizations can operate in a socially responsible way. This means acting in an ethical and transparent way that contributes to the health and welfare of society.
We aim to conduct business in an ethical manner and we seek to improve the regions where we work. This may involve creating jobs, working with local enterprises or making the area more aesthetically pleasing. Most importantly, we’re dedicated to having a presence in our communities and we encourage our people to get involved as much as they can.
The essential characteristic of social responsibility is the willingness of an organisation to incorporate social and environmental considerations in its decision making process and be accountable for the impacts of its decisions and activities on society and the environment.
