Back in 2004, EFQM produced the “Framework for Corporate Social Responsibility” to provide organisations with a framework to help assess and improve the approaches they had adopted to managing their Corporate Social Responsibilities. This framework drew together the expertise from a number of leading companies, as well as including the then recently formed United Nations Global Compact.

This new EFQM Framework for Sustainability has again drawn on the expertise of a group of leading companies and the UN Global Compact. It also incorporates the numerous changes that have been made to the EFQM Excellence Model in the intervening years.

The structure of this framework follows that of the EFQM Excellence Model 2013. Some of the detail within is taken directly from the Model to ensure consistency. However, many new examples of what we’d expect to observe in an “excellent organisation” have been added. These are designed to help understand what’s possible and inspire your own sustainability program.

But remember, this is a non-prescriptive assessment framework. It’s designed to be used in any organisation, regardless of size or sector. You may feel that some of the examples are not relevant to your organisation. As with any assessment, you need to keep an open mind and ask the right questions to ensure this really is the case. You might well be surprised with some of the answers.
