Want to get your business involved?

Corporate Citizenship or Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) describes how a business commits to and becomes involved in initiatives contributing to the interests and welfare of their employees, customers, the environment and the community.

As more and more consumers, businesses and employees seek out organisations with moral and ethical dimensions, Corporate Citizenship is fundamental for any business regardless of your size aiming for long term sustainability. It develops a positive image and reputation for businesses, builds customer loyalty, increases profits and makes you an employer of choice.

Find out how Knox City Council can assist your business to get involved in the community.
