Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is the continuing commitment by organisations to behave ethically and contribute to social and economic development, while improving the quality of life of staff, volunteers, and the local community and society at large.
GBI members are committed to the principles of CSR and operate ethically in all aspects of their business operations.
GBI member Alan Johnston, from Embarq Ltd, is a leading consultant in CSR and social value. This is important to any organisation, particularly golf clubs, in order to demonstrate the social value golf brings to society, whether it’s health and well-being benefits for members, demonstrating responsibility to the wider community, or being environmentally responsible. We can help golf clubs raise funds for grass-roots golf activity, social inclusion and education activity, or reaching out to wider society.
Other services for golf clubs include community engagement strategies; funding development; social and economic impact measurement; volunteering policies; governance advice; ethical procurement practice; evaluation toolkits; and CSR reports.
