Innovation and Imagination

AMEinfo.com

One of the side-benefits of CSR is fostering innovation and imagination in the corporate sector. Ingenious and even quirky ideas are appearing across the globe, as people think laterally to find relevant, beneficial synergies between businesses and their stakeholders.

Flowers of peace

Flowers and battlefields already have a history together: poppy badges are used to raise money for war veterans in many countries. But an innovative twist on the idea is a new partnership between Organic Bouquet, billed as the world's first organic online florist, and the Adopt-A-Minefield campaign.

Adopt-A-Minefield will promote Organic Bouquet flowers on its website - www.landmines.org - and to its membership through online ads, newsletters and e-mail. Organic Bouquet will then donate 15 percent of its sales made through these channels to the charity. The two will also work together to create various fundraising campaigns.

Organic Bouquet also has a "charitable bouquets" page, where proceeds from the sale of each flower goes to different charities, such as the WWF, Project Hope and the American Humane Foundation. During the 2004 holiday season, Organic Bouquet introduced a "Peace Wreath", a peace sign made from wild-crafted Long Needle Pine. It plans to repeat the wreath this winter, donating a portion of sales to Adopt-A-Minefield.

Organic Bouquet and Adopt-A-Minefield are both committed to enabling land to be put to productive, sustainable use: and this is the key to successful CSR partnerships. Using common links and synergies, a CSR initiative is firstly made easier, as the interest and skill-sets are already in place, and secondly it will added, relevant benefits to both parties.
