CSR Asia is a mission-driven business which has evolved over time to become a leader on sustainability issues in Asia

Our Story

CSR Asia was created in 2004 in Hong Kong by a group of founders who believed business could be a positive force for change.

The organization was a sustainability pioneer in Asia, and has grown alongside sustainability awareness in the region. It was designed to help organizations create positive impact for themselves and the wider world through responsible, inclusive and sustainable business.

Starting off with just one office in Hong Kong, CSR Asia has grown to become a trusted expert on sustainability issues across Asia with 5 offices including Singapore, Bangkok, Sydney and Tokyo. As an Asia-based company, CSR Asia is uniquely positioned to work alongside other Asia-based companies, helping them to embrace sustainability at every level of the organization with a real understanding of their challenges and concerns.

CSR Asia promotes sustainability through a wide range of channels including advisory services, networks, platforms for cross sector collaboration and by providing access to a repository of insights. In 2017, a new phase for CSR Asia began when it was acquired by ELEVATE, an industry leader in sustainability and supply chain services globally. ELEVATE has integrated like-minded, mission-driven companies such as CSR Asia to create a global sustainability platform to support sustainable, balanced and inclusive economic growth for employees, employers and the planet.
