Our Plan.

Step Changers is a community-driven, volunteer-run movement that relies heavily on the work of individuals interested in making great corporate social responsibility normal. We have highlighted who we are here and who runs our team here, but this section is dedicated to our Annual Plan. We publish it with an interest to inspire new volunteers to get involved, and as a part of ‘turning the wheel’, one of the team’s core values that centres on everyone doing their bit.

Our Vision

We’re working together to make great corporate social responsibility normal in New Zealand.

By working, we mean: continually striving to raise the standards of CSR in New Zealand, by embracing improvements to the step changing ethos as more is learned about what great CSR looks like.

By together, we mean: activists, academics, business professionals, young students, and public sector professionals working towards improving the standards of CSR in New Zealand, as a group.

By great, we’re talking about: regularly seeing businesses achieve the sixteen standards for great CSR, which you can read about here.


Read our Winter 2019 update

This winter, Step Changers has a number of milestones it is scheduled to reach that help bring about this change at both a local and macro level.

Our Goals

To make this vision a reality, the team has three core goals it is working towards this year, which will centre some of our annual report discussion in September.

  1. Build a community of Step Changers, on and offline.
    We want to connect step-changing individuals and businesses from around New Zealand to help make great corporate social responsibility normal in the workplace, both online and in the real world.

  2. Make our database of community projects accessible

    We are striving to publish our database of community projects and partnership opportunities from around New Zealand, so that every business can find ways to give back to their community easily.

  3. Act as thought-leaders in Corporate Social Responsibility

    We’ve assembled a team of academics, lawyers, sustainability experts, and writers with an aim to publish more academic content on what great corporate social responsibility looks like, to sit alongside our case-studies works. We’ll be aiming to publish three foundational pieces on CSR over the next year, so watch out for these.
