When it comes to setting and achieving your environmental, social and community development goals, where does your board’s role end and management’s begin?
What are the basic components of a comprehensive credit union social responsibility governance and management framework?
Are there specific practices smaller credit unions should consider in managing their CSR?
Answers to each of these questions are examined closely in Canadian Central’s brand new guide: Governance and Management for Credit Union Social Responsibility. This guide will help credit union directors and managers better understand where they fit in to the evolving practices of CSR. It lays out the six components of good CSR governance and management and explains some of the best ways to develop each, with practical examples drawn from credit unions like Kootenay Savings, iNova and Servus.
In addition, the guide is built around a simple checklist that can help you assess and keep track of your credit union’s progress in practice areas like commitment and strategy, execution, engagement, and monitoring and reporting.
Just like each of the companion guides you will find on the Credit Union Social Responsibility InfoHub this tool is 100% free for credit unions to download and use. A new tool on CSR metrics and reporting will be released before the end of the year.
