The "Media corporate social responsibility (CSR) forum" is a group of big media companies developing CSR and sustainability practices and understanding for the media sector.

The Forum was established in 2001 following recognition that the practice of CSR and sustainability for media companies has many unique features that sets it apart from traditional industry and other business sectors. Our work includes:

  • developing an understanding of the implications of CSR for media organisations
  • identifying areas for prioritisation
  • sharing best practices
  • engaging with stakeholders
  • running collaborative projects on key issues

We meet with stakeholders on a quarterly basis, produce research and host regular public events. To get an overview of some of the issues facing the sector, please have a look at our survey, The Media CSR Forum: Key Issues For The Media Industry.

In June 2014 we organised the Mirrors or Movers II conference which was kindly hosted by the BBC. The event covered three important topics over which the media has a significant influence: women and media; environment and media; and privacy and media.

Further information including videos on each topic and a summary report can be found at
