Directory 2008
Welcome to the world’s leading international printed directory of
professional services offered in the corporate social responsibility
field. The directory is the definitive one-stop reference source to
‘who’s who’ among CSR service providers and is distributed to
3500 individuals working in companies, government agencies and
other organizations worldwide.

The CSR Professional Services Directory 2008 is also accessible

to all internet users at Ethical Performance Online

This edition is even more comprehensive than last year’s, both in

terms of the number of service providers listed and the number of
categories. A total of 604 service providers are included under 56
categories, compared with 443 under 49 categories in 2007.
Once again the 2008 edition lists service providers from all over
the world.

We hope the directory will prove useful to all those with CSR
responsibilities working in companies, and that it will help
companies and service providers alike to build partnerships, pool
knowledge and share expertise.

We welcome your feedback and comments on how this third edition

could be improved to suit your needs even more closely (the email
address is

Finally, a warm word of thanks to world-leading CSR and

EHS software provider Enablon for sponsoring the
CSR Professional Services Directory this year.

CSR Professional Services Directory 2008

Index of Categories
This directory is divided into two sections. The first is the Index of Categories, which
begins on this page. This alphabetical index lists organizations offering professional services under
56 categories, from Academic Institutions to Work/Life Balance. Organizations are listed by
geographical region, based on where the service is offered and on office location.

To find an organization that provides services in a particular category, look for those listed under the
service you require and then refer to the List of Organizations, which begins on page 31. For example,
if you are looking for assistance with the writing of a sustainability, citizenship or other type of
non-financial report, the Report Writing category on page 22 lists 33 organizations offering this
service. You can read more about what each has to offer in the List of Organizations.
