Richard Collins – Founder of CSR-A
Enabling Social Responsibility to build ethical and caring organisations

As an experienced brand strategist Richard has pursued a passion for helping companies in the public, private and third sector to promote their brand reputation and CSR activity. Richard founded Ecobrand in 2011 which specialises in brand reputation and  helps organisations promote their CSR and sustainability efforts as an integral part of their brand personality. To compliment this he also runs the International CSR Excellence Awards. This eventually led to the development and launch of CSR-A in 2018, which provides the UK’s only National Social Responsibility Accreditation Scheme. Since then CSR-A has developed CSR Training and Workshops, Social Impact Reporting and a CSR programme for primary and secondary schools. 


He is president for the Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce ‘Bucks’ Council, a member of the Society of Leadership Fellows and a Trustee for the Heart of Bucks – Community Foundation.

CSR-A

We are a leading UK based company delivering a standard for social responsibility. It is now more important than ever to show that we are doing everything we can to improve the world we live in for future generations, not only by reducing the negative impact we have on the environment, but by building a better and cohesive society. It’s amazing what we are already doing that we don’t talk about. CSR-A provides the perfect opportunity to tell your positive story

What is CSR Accreditation – Showing what good looks like

CSR Accreditation is a great way to pull together what you are already doing with regard to CSR. It helps you easily report on your organisations sustainable and community engagement. The Accreditation application process provides a simple and straight forward template where you can record activity against the CSR Four Pillars of environment, workplace, community and philanthropy. Each CSR Pillar is designed to help you audit and impact report on areas such as energy performance, recycling, staff engagement, health and well-being, community engagement and supporting local and national charities.


Accredited organisations can then use their accreditation to create a social impact report, address ESG reporting and identify SDG’s

We provide a range of workshops, webinars, training and social impact reporting.
