U.S. corporate social responsibility software market size, by deployment, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

The goal of corporate social responsibility is to establish a connection between society and companies, and thus, companies need to prioritize both internal and external dimensions of corporate social responsibility, such as safety & health, HR management, local communities, environmental impact management, human rights, business partners, and more. Factors such as the increasing need to build a better brand reputation across enterprises and the growing demand among organizations to enhance their business practices & policies are driving the demand for corporate social responsibility software and services.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the corporate social responsibility software industry as the lockdown led to an increased focus on the importance of corporate responsibility, sustainability, and ethical business practices. Work from home became the norm for the majority of organizations during the pandemic, which further boosted the demand for digital tools to manage corporate social responsibility activities. Therefore, CSR software provides a much-needed monitoring tool to evaluate and assess the impact of activities such as supply chain management, particularly in the areas of worker safety, human rights, and environmental sustainability. For instance, in 2019, Benevity, Inc. introduced an updated version of its platform, which includes the release of a mobile app. The app enables individuals to connect with causes they are passionate about, regardless of their location or time constraints.

Deployment Insights

On the other hand, the small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) segment is expected to witness the fastest growth rate of 10.9% during the forecast period.
