Research Topic:
The BITC CR Index - a true measure of Responsible Business Practice?

Research Details:
In recent years indexes such as the BITC CR Index have driven a significant amount of activity within organisations looking for recognition for their responsible business practices. A frequent question amongst practitioners is whether such activity really improves business practice (is what is measured managed?) or does it distract management resource from critical core activity. Does regular participation in an index encourage a tactical (box checking) mentality rather than a strategic view of business activity? This resaerch will address these questions.
