Before we start

This assessment was developed as part of the CSR-Ready project. The aim of the project is to raise awareness among small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) about Corporate Social Responsibility and to support them in developing strategies and measures through training and education materials. This assessment aims help to identify possible areas of action for concrete measures. 

The project is funded by the European Commission within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme. Further information on the project can be found here: 

The assessment was implemented by the vision works - tvw GmbH. For technical questions or problems, please contact:


The aim of this assessment is to identify possible areas of action where your company can take a more sustainable approach to Corporate Social Responsibility. The assessment is structured according to company divisions along a typical value chain. In doing so, we are guided by the well-known model of "Porter's value chain" - a model that has been popular in management literature for a long time. We ask for concrete CSR-Ready measures along the individual company divisions. At the same time, we will ask you to assess the importance of each of these areas for your company and its key stakeholders. This assessment is subjective - but it helps us to support you in a possible prioritisation of fields of action. 

Of course, not all business areas are relevant to you - please mark this in each of the questions so that we can make an overall assessment. 

At the end of the questionnaire, you can download a feedback report as a PDF - and you will also receive this by email (if you wish).

No preparation is necessary for the assessment. 


Every company is different - and so is the impact that corporate actions have in terms of social and environmental aspects. This assessment serves as an orientation for small and medium-sized enterprises to identify areas of action to increase their social impact or reduce their ecological footprint. As this is a cross-sector assessment that is intended to reflect a wide range of companies, we make no claim to the completeness or accuracy of the areas of action identified or measures proposed. If you proceed with the assessment, you explicitly accept that these are only possible areas of action and that this assessment is not a company-specific audit. 

Data Policy

During this assessment, we will ask you for personal and company-specific data. The personal data is used to individualise the feedback. We will use the company data to evaluate your specific answers and provide you with automated, company-specific feedback. You can download this feedback or, if you provide us with your email address, you will also receive it by email. We will not share with third parties any data, nor use your contact information for commercial purposes.
