What is the ICRS?
The Institute of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (ICRS) is the UK’s professional body for Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (CRS). Established by a group of senior CRS professionals, the ICRS supports and recognises people and companies for their achievements in CRS. ICRS Hubs bring together CR and Sustainability professionals located in specific geographic regions, at the same stage of their career, or with the same area of interest to collaborate and share good practice, knowledge, and skills.
In conjunction with the ICRS, Davy Horizons are establishing the ICRS Ireland hub. The hub will provide education, Continuous Professional Development (CPD) accreditation, world class events and networking. ICRS Ireland supports and recognies individuals and organisations for their achievements in sustainability and ESG.
