'I welcomed the opportunity to write for Quality World Magazine on the importance and requirements for Corporate Social Responsibility. CSR is a vital and developing element within today’s business world that needs to be fully understood and implemented throughout all organisations, no matter how big or small. CSR is becoming a popular trend within the business world but it must be implemented in the correct way to ensure that it delivers benefits for both the organisation and the local community. CSR is an important element of our operations and we ensure that where ever possible we are implementing strategies that will benefit the communities within which, we work. As a growing business we will maintain this effort and continue to focus on developing this area to ensure we continue to promote a better and more responsible water industry’
