The CSR Group



"Paula worked with me at Whole Foods Market 365 brand to help us establish international social responsibility standards. While these standards really need to come from within an organization, CSRG administered the audits, helped us interpret them, led us in a process to develop a personalized approach, as well as communicate to our manufacturers. This work clarified, to our entire company, the complexity and risk of sustainability issue in the supply chain. 

Paula is a thought leader in this area, having worked with leading global brands for over 13 years. Her understanding of sustainability and its depth and complexity of the issues is at the top of her profession. Paula and CSRG are now taking this to the web via software tools that will be groundbreaking and game changing. The tool will allow thousands of companies to 'wake up' to sustainability challenges of global sourcing in a easy to understand format. Bravo."
