How do you define Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)?

I know what it is not. It is not a marketing tool – or a trend. To me, CSR doesn’t necessarily mean huge, expensive initiatives. We have certainly invested significantly in CSR, but sometimes the simplest actions can have a big impact. We believe CSR should run through every aspect of the business – from designing instruments that use more eco-friendly materials to organizing an annual fun run in the community.

“Responsibility” is the crucial word – putting not just yourself or your profits at the heart of your decision-making, but your employees, your community and your environment. There is so much we can do as companies and as individuals to make things better for everyone – and I believe we all have a responsibility to seize that opportunity. Of course, the 135 people who make up KNAUER cannot save the world single-handedly, but we do what we can.

About the Author

Charlotte Barker

After studying biology at Imperial College London, I got my start in biomedical publishing as a commissioning editor for healthcare journals, and have spent my career covering everything from early-stage research to clinical medicine. I joined Texere Publishing in 2014, attracted by the creativity, talent and passion of the team. As Editor of The Analytical Scientist, I help scientists share their stories in vibrant and engaging content that reflects their passion and hard work.
