Examples and Resources for CSR in Texas
Corporate Social Responsibility is the idea that companies can invest in society and the environment while also operating and profiting as businesses. But what does that look like? How can your company or organization Take Care of Texas through environmental social responsibility?
Start by identifying ways you can conserve resources and protect the environment where you work. Maybe it’s replacing appliances for more energy-efficient models, placing a recycling bin in the copy room, carpooling, reducing company vehicle emissions (Texas Emissions Reduction Plan), or even hosting a team-building outdoor cleanup.
