Social Responsibility for Businesses through Universal Design
The mission of Product Accessibility LLC is to spark action to improve the way things are done and what can be achieved by businesses through the Seven Principles of Universal Design.
The case for making our society more universally accessible and usable to all is a compelling one on many fronts. Universal Design proposes a progressive and evolving approach to the development of inclusive environments that can be accessed, understood and used to the greatest extent possible. Not only does Universal Design make good business sense, it also has many compelling social and legal drivers. http://universaldesign.ie/What-is-Universal-Design/Benefits-and-drivers/#bus
Our work positively contributes to your business’ engagement in the social concerns defined in the global definition of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG). Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a self-regulating business model that helps a company be socially accountable—to itself, its stakeholders, and the public. By practicing corporate social responsibility, also called corporate citizenship, companies can be conscious of the kind of impact they are having on all aspects of society, including economic, social, and environmental.
People who benefit are in one of every five households and have visible and non-visible disabilities. They and their caring allies prefer engaging with companies that focus on an accessible buyer and user experience.
