AD is proud to be gold accredited for CSR (Corporate, Social Responsibility.)
The CSR Accreditation is an effective way to benchmark what you are already doing with regard to social responsibility. It is a process in which you collate, measure and report on your organisation’s socially responsible activities. An accreditation will also provide you with a roadmap for planning future activity.
This is a fully holistic and inclusive approach that allows for all organisations – private, public and third sector and is for all sizes from sole traders to large corporations. It employs a white paper approach that promotes an organisation’s individuality.
The accreditation process involved a thorough auditing exercise of our polices, practices, implementation, reporting and evidence, as well as future planning. The panel after evaluation of our submission and supporting evidence awarded AD with a Gold Accreditation, which is warmly received and much appreciated.
Sustainability is vitally important and AD intend to continue to thrive as a business in a sustainable, ethical and socially responsible manner.
Achieving CSR Accreditation is a visible testimony of excellence in Social Responsibility. The accreditation helps you integrate social, environmental, ethical, human rights and consumer concerns into your business operations and strategy.
