CSRwire membership grows by almost 30% in last two years

CSRwire membership grows by almost 30% in last two years and distributed news items grow by almost 50%

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Jan. 08 /CSRwire/ - CSRwire, the largest repository of voluntary disclosure research in the world and leading global source of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability news, has released its third annual United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) Communication on Progress (COP).

The UNGC is the largest voluntary corporate responsibility initiative in the world that asks companies and organizations to honor UN goals, including the Millennium Development Goals.

"We're proud to share how our core values, business operations and commitment to social and environmental responsibility align with the UN Global Compact’s principles," said Joe Sibilia, CSRwire CEO. "Every step we take brings us closer to a more economically just and environmentally sustainable society and away from single bottom line capitalism."

The COP reports on continued growth for CSRwire: membership continues to expand at the rate of 400-600 members per year, due in part to a new membership structure launched in 2011, and a very conscious and active presence on social media channels. Additionally the COP reports on CSRwire's recertification as a B-Corporation and notes that CSRwire employees volunteered over 1,600 hours in community causes.

"Sustainability means taking responsibility for our actions and ensuring our social, economic and environmental impact is net positive. I have been with CSRwire now for just over one year and am delighted to be part of a vibrant team which makes a tremendous contribution to creating awareness for corporate responsibility, sustainability and philanthropy."

"Almost everything that happens in the sustainability space appears somewhere on CSRwire.com, either through our Press Release service or through exclusive content developed by our community of writers,” said Aman Singh, CSRwire's Editorial Director.
