UK firms 'are not serious' on CSR

Nearly half of directors and other senior managers of NGOs believe most UK companies are not serious about corporate social responsibility, says new research.

And 58 per cent of respondents to the survey said they felt there should be more legislation to force companies to behave responsibly.

The survey, by Ipsos Mori for mobile company O2, asked 40 directors and other senior officers from leading British NGOs for their views on corporate responsibility partnerships.

Peter Erskine, chief executive of O2, said: "The survey highlights the need for corporate responsibility to be embedded into the fabric of how we do business."
