Methodology

This report, prepared by Project Five Consulting on behalf of NFB Business & Skills, summarises the results of a survey carried out in May to July 2016. It provides a snapshot of the current state of CSR perceptions, CSR activity and reporting across the SME construction sector.

The survey was sent out to all NFB members as well as the wider construction sector and completed online. The results provide an indication of how CSR is perceived and undertaken across the sector.

Respondents to the survey were asked to state whether they were a member of a trade federation or not.  As per the graph below, just over half of respondents were NFB members, 13% belong to various federations with the remaining 38% not belonging to any federation.

Sample

The majority of respondents were SMEs with 78% employing <250 people and 54% turning over <£11 million.
