CSR is the core part of Ecorys UK activity

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has become a core part of Ecorys UK activity over the years. Our adoption of a ’Charity of the Year’ and an annual volunteering day has seen us volunteer and donate to worthwhile causes including Young Minds, Contact the Elderly, Women’s Aid and Crisis.

Our approach to CSR is to continue to commit and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of our workforce and their families as well as of the community and society at large.

Our aim is to achieve our business objectives in a socially responsible and environmentally sustainable way and to make improvements every year.
