Join other like minded businesses and sign up to the Bournemouth Chamber of Trade & Commerce (BCTC) CSR accreditation scheme.  The scheme is open to all businesses not just those in Bournemouth or members of the Bournemouth Chamber of Trade & Commerce.

To join the scheme you need to complete our Corporate Social Responsibility Scorecard that was created by the Bournemouth Chamber of Trade & Commerce.  If successful you will be awarded a Bronze, Silver or Gold accreditation.  Once you have achieve Bronze, Silver or Gold your business will be eligible to be certified under our CSR accreditation scheme.

If you are a new business, estimates are acceptable or you can provide forecasts.  If you don’t currently have a CSR policy – simply say no policy on the scorecard.  Initially, we will make a judgement on the award to give but as we collect more data we will create a more scientific approach to the award levels.

We will award successful businesses Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards on an annual basis. Those businesses will then be able to display our logo to show their commitment to the scheme.

To join the scheme there is a small annual charge.

  • Start Ups (under 12 months old) £10
  • Small Businesses (under 10 employees) £20
  • Medium Businesses (11 to 100 employees) £100

These can be paid either via:

  • Sort Code 30-91-08 Account 60436668

Half the money will go to Bournemouth Chamber of Trade and Commerce and the other half to a new Social Enterprise which will develop resources and promote CSR. All Directors in both organisations are unpaid volunteers.
