Small Mighty CSR is here to help small business entrepreneurs become sustainability superheroes.
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) are increasingly expected of businesses of all sizes. But it doesn't have to be hard.
In fact, implementing CSR will help you reduce costs, attract customers, keep your staff happy and productive, and give back to your community. You don't have to do it all - just focus on your business' unique superpower, that one area where you can contribute the most to a better world.
That’s what Small Mighty CSR is all about – simple, practical actions for small, medium and micro businesses that make sustainability an opportunity, not a burden.
There are two key groups Small Mighty CSR serves, each with a slightly different approach:
Improve your performance on CSR questionnaires and establish the policies, procedures, systems and monitoring to meet your customers’ expectations of a responsible supplier.
For more information on meeting your customers’ supplier expectations, see here.
Identify your core sustainability vision, unique positioning (superpowers), and a roadmap to achieve your goals and communicate your approach to your customers and employees.

You can read more about the differences between CSR and sustainability and other common questions in our FAQ section.
CSR is an opportunity to build a better business –
better for people, better for the planet, and better for profits.
Expectations of businesses to be responsible corporate citizens are increasing around the world. So far the focus has mostly been on large businesses, but increasingly smaller businesses will be held to the same standards, as supply chain requirements filter down.
Consumers and employees actively seek responsible businesses.
And with increasing regulation and supply chain transparency, your corporate customers demand it.
Being small does not excuse any business from responsibly managing and minimising their impact. Those suppliers who can meet and exceed sustainability expectations will achieve a competitive advantage in winning business, not to mention customer and staff loyalty.
