Responsible business is not just about how a business spends its money, but also about how it makes its money. It is about managing corporate growth responsibly while reducing its environmental footprint. It is also about social responsibility, which is how a business operates as an employer, manufacturer, supplier and customer, and how it can help to build vibrant local communities as a neighbor.

Business in the Community, the Prince's Responsible Business Network in the U.K., has released its annual benchmark of responsible business, the Corporate Responsibility Index (CR Index) for 2015. The Index provides an insight into how leading companies are driving responsible business practices and serves as a valuable self-assessment tool. This robust benchmarking tool involves a rigorous process to assess companies against a diverse range of factors, from how engaged their board and senior managers are with responsible business issues to the link between remuneration and CR performance.
