CSR International is about supporting professionals to find the balance and synergies between society, the economy and nature.

If your work or aspirations align with any of 17 Sustainable Development Goals or the 7 Core Subjects of the ISO 26000 Standard on Social Responsibility, you are eligible and welcome to join CSR International


The original mission of CSR International was to be an incubator for CSR 2.0, which means Transformative Corporate Sustainability & Responsibility (CSR). Since then, we have delivered CSR training around the world, welcomed many people through our internship program, shared hundreds of SSR Research Digests and licensed CSR 2.0 Assessors & Advisors.


2017 marks a strategic shift from being primarily a research sharing portal to being a professional membership oriented organisation. SSR International’s new mission is to support CSR professionals around the world to make a positive difference by enabling them to establish their credibility, collaborate with each other, access relevant content, upgrade their skills, share upcoming events and find work opportunities. We invite all existing and aspiring SSR professionals to join us.
