"Today, CSR goes far beyond the old philanthropy of the past - donating money to good causes at the end of the financial year - and is instead an all year round responsibility that companies accept for the environment around them, for the best working practices, for engagement in their local communities and for the recognition that brands depend not only on quality, price and uniqueness but on how, cumulatively, they interact with companies' workforce, community and environment."
"Now we need to move towards a challenging measure of corporate responsibility, where we judge results not just by the input but by its outcomes: the difference we make to the world in which we live, and the contribution we make to poverty reduction"
Gordon Brown, Prime Minister (2007-2010)
