Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
Low Carbon Can Help You With The Environmental Element

Corporate Social Responsibility

At Low Carbon, our mission is to help you with the environmental element of your Corporate Social Responsibility.

You can meet your greener CSR obligations with our services, all of which contribute to a cleaner, greener environment. There are no downsides; you reduce your carbon footprint, save money in the process, and earn the distinction of being a business that truly makes a difference.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is very important to us at Low Carbon Energy. We are proudly associated with Burnley Football Club, which does fantastic work in the local community by focusing their efforts into inclusion, sporting, educational and public health programmes for people in and around Burnley.

Every time we receive a sales referral through Burnley FC, we donate 5% of the revenue from that sale straight back to the charity. It’s just our way of giving something back!

You can find out more about Burnley FC’s work here, or read on to find out why CSR should be a central concern for your business.

Business benefits of corporate social responsibility

Corporate social responsibility has many advantages that can apply to any business, regardless of its size or sector.

The potential benefits from CSR include:

  • Better brand recognition
  • Positive business reputation
  • Increased sales and customer loyalty
  • Operational costs savings
  • Better financial performance
  • Greater ability to attract talent and retain staff
  • Organisational growth
  • Easier access to capital

Responsible business reputation

Building a reputation as a responsible business can lead to competitive advantage. Companies often favour suppliers who have responsible policies, since this can reflect on how their customers see them. Some customers don’t just prefer to deal with responsible companies – they insist on it.

Costs savings

By reducing resource use, waste and emissions, you can help the environment and save money too. With a few simple steps, you may be able to lower your utility bills and achieve savings for your business. See how to reduce your business waste to save money.

Finding and keeping talented staff

Being a responsible, sustainable business may make it easier to recruit new employees or retain existing ones. Employees may be motivated to stay longer, reducing the costs and disruption of recruitment and retraining.

Other important benefits of CSR to your business

By acting in a sustainable, responsible way, you may also find it easier to:

  • Access finance – investors are more likely to back a reputable business
  • Attract positive media attention – e.g. when taking part in community activities
  • Reduce regulatory burden – good relationships with local authorities can often make doing business easier
  • Identify new business opportunities – e.g. for development of new products or services
