Corporate Social Responsibility partnership

Bournemouth based Marketing Consultancy e-nexus has partnered up with Bournemouth Chamber of Trade and Commerce to support the development and launch of the Chamber’s new Corporate Social Responsibility accreditation scheme. Focusing on supporting the marketing of the scheme, the first output of the partnership will be the launch of a new CSR website that can be found at www.csr-online.org

The Bournemouth Chamber of Trade & Commerce scheme has been developed to enable more businesses to be corporately socially responsible by:

Supporting charities by increasing donations to charities, increase staff volunteering and increase payroll giving.

Supporting employees by encouraging employers to support staff with flexible working, home working, stress management, gender and disability equality.

Supporting local businesses by encouraging businesses to buy from local and UK based businesses to create sustainable business communities and economic stability.

Richard Milton from e-nexus said: “We are delighted to be working with the Bournemouth Chamber on this exciting new initiative. We are looking forward to working with the Chamber to build awareness of the scheme and grow the number of accredited businesses both in Bournemouth and the surrounding area whilst at the same time enhancing our own CSR credentials. As a company, we are volunteering our time and expertise to this really important project.”

Founded in 2016, e-nexus is a Bournemouth based Marketing Consultancy that specialises in Strategic Marketing Planning & Performance Measurement. Headed up by Founder and Managing Director Richard Milton, e-nexus have a wealth of national and international experience supporting business owners, managers and marketers to deliver effective marketing for their organisations.

Bournemouth Chamber of Trade and Commerce are proud to announce the launch of our Corporate Social Responsibility Accreditation Scheme.

The purpose of the scheme is encourage businesses to

  • Support Charities
  • Support Employees
  • Support Local Businesses

To demonstrate support businesses are asked to complete our Scorecard (estimates are acceptable, new businesses can provide forecasts, if you don’t have a policy – simply say no policy). Initially, we will make a judgement on the award to give but as we collect more data will create a more scientific approach to award levels.
