Corporate Social Responsibility Be Heard

Let Your Brands 2004 Corporate Social Responsibility Be Heard

Corporate social responsibility has only just been born; it hasn't even reached a major boom yet. When it does, is your brand prepared for this new 'measurement' of business? Statistics prove that CSR profiling increases sales, customer dedication and brand recognition. Whatever dollar value you invest in it you will see it come back ten-fold. Forget billboards and television ads for a minute - are you investing money where it actually directly affects your consumers? CSR is the future role of business.

Niche Forecasting (New Zealand’s Corporate Social Responsibility Specialist) is publishing a ‘New Zealand CSR 2004 Report’. This is your brands chance to have your efforts seen amongst other New Zealand brands and make sure everyone is aware of the initiatives you are doing and have done in 2004. Also what is your brands purpose in 2005 and/or its new year’s resolution? What’s your brand next big ‘WOW’? Share as much or as little info as you like (but as a guideline, try not to exceed 250 words).

As CSR is a growing area in New Zealand, the Niche Forecasting report allows corporations and consumers to review each brands effort from one collective report. The average consumer or executive wants a summary of CSR initiatives not a 40 page report from every individual brand. This report is great for your brand if you did CSR but didn’t publish your own report.

If your brand chooses not to submit any information about your CSR efforts this year, Niche Forecasting will research and publish available info on your CSR so to control your own content in this report (which will be widely distributed) by responding with your brands own comments. Please send your brands 2004 CSR story by fax, email or post to the contact details below by January 30th 2005.

Make an impact, Allison Toner – Corporate Niche Designer of Niche Forecasting
