CSR and ESG
As the general population, business community and all levels of government become more socially conscious, the focus on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) has increased significantly. CSR and ESG are both ways organisations can demonstrate their commitment to sustainable business practices and measurable social outcomes. Both can be used by organisations simultaneously, with CSR providing an internal framework for your organisation to communicate clear objectives with your staff, while ESG provides measurable goals that you can report against for your funders and investors. So, CSR can be excellent for driving awareness of key organisational initiatives and ESG can provide a way to focus effort and the structures to measure and clearly demonstrate your social impact.
As an organisation established to support and make a positive impact on the Social Sector, Benefolk is perhaps uniquely placed to understand you and your organisation’s needs, no matter whether you’re an NFP, charity, philanthropist, business or government agency.
Strengthening our CSR program has been critical for the growth of our business, and we have been about to leverage the specialist expertise through Benefolk (formerly The Xfactor Collective), which has allowed us to build a strong social purpose and CSR program that is deeply connected to and amplifies our brand."

Why Benefolk for CSR and ESG?
While our specialists are embedded in the social sector, many come from a corporate or government background, so we understand where CSR and ESG intersect across the three sectors. We are therefore well-placed to advise and connect all the players working in this space, at both a strategic and operational level.
Benefolk can support you and your organisation to ensure you have the frameworks and processes in place to clearly articulate your sustainability credentials and the ability to measure and report on your social impact. Together, we can harness the focus on CSR and ESG to drive lasting social impact through expertise, collaboration and partnership that improves outcomes for society.
