Our Corporate Community initiative delivers the first high profile platform committed to delivering CSR and community engagement news and information to a broad national audience.

Pro Bono Australia is dedicated to supporting the global movement that is shifting business away from purely profit-driven capitalism towards operating as integrated "social citizens."

Through Corporate Community we aim to:

  • Educate businesses about the value and process of implementing social responsibility strategies into their business model.
  • Provide news and information on all aspects of CSR/Shared Value and community engagement from an Australian perspective whilst drawing on global research and best practice examples.
  • Allow member companies to profile their strategies, share their sustainability reports, discuss their community involvement and share their learnings.

Read our Statement of Ethics for an overview of the guiding principles around this site.
