What it means to be a Responsible Business

A responsible business is one that embodies all the elements of environmental and social responsibility that are relevant to its various stakeholders. At Acclaro, we help you to weave a responsible business mindset into the culture of your organisation, an approach that’s equally applicable to public sector and voluntary sector.

In fact, we’ve been doing exactly this via our work on the Sustainable Facilities Management Index (SFMI) since 2014. Now we’ve adapted the SFMI assessment framework to provide an holistic approach that is applicable to any type of organisation, enabling us to evaluate its performance against 24 ESG criteria to provide a benchmark against which future progress can be measured and pinpoint opportunities for improvement.

How we can help

While our Responsible Business Assessment can provide a solid foundation for improving social and environmental impacts, it’s not all we can offer. We can also benchmark your organisation’s performance against external frameworks such as the GRI or the UNSDGs or against your own internal targets, highlighting risks and opportunities and developing strategies to address them. Our deep knowledge of corporate social responsibility and the breadth of our experience enables us to tailor an approach that is best suited to your business, bringing benefits that include:

  • a positive response to the increasing sustainability-related demands of investors
  • enhanced reputation
  • increased sales and customer loyalty
  • operational cost savings
  • stronger financial performance
  • greater ability to attract and retain top talent, particularly Millennials and Gen Z
  • improved resilience in a rapidly changing world.
