CASE STUDY — GRAINGER

Global Impact helped to shape and communicate the Grainger Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy. As the leading distributor of industrial supplies, MRO equipment, tools and materials, Grainger had the unique opportunity to demonstrate shared value at each phase of its supply chain. Global Impact provided benchmarking, executive and leadership assessments and a forward-thinking approach to both strategy and communications. An initial output of this ongoing work is a CSR Report called “Global Values. Local Commitments.” The Grainger CSR report is integrated both in print and online. The traditional print report drives readers online, where they can learn year round about Grainger’s CSR activities, in real time. Readers are also invited to “continue the conversation” via social media channels.
