RESEARCH | CSR in the Development Industry

Harbinger Consultants has been looking at Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the development industry and produced a preliminary research paper that considers some industry specific tendencies in CSR. The paper has been published on Scribd (embedded below). We studied the websites of eight large development companies, operating across a spectrum of development and planning activity, to identify whether CSR initiatives are represented as corporate priorities. The research is not exhaustive and is intended to provide indications of CSR commitment in an industry about which a significant body of research is not available. Given current pressure points in affordable housing, urban sprawl, transport, social equity and sustainability, it seemed timely to consider the CSR engagement of an industry that plays such a significant role in shaping human settlements.
