It is now a network of 800 small, medium and large businesses, all operating across London, whose influence spreads far beyond. They recruit up to December each year for their free one-year membership to the Newcomers programme, specially designed for businesses new to CSR which includes information and practical tools for efficient and cost-effective CSR implementation.






The City Procurement Project gives free advice to City-based businesses to help them implement responsible procurement practices. This includes guidance on local and diverse purchasing, as well as social enterprise procurement. The City of London’s Buy Social Directory provides buyers with a freely accessible database of over 8,000 social enterprise suppliers that sell a range of products and services, and reinvest their profits for good.
