Corporate Citizenship Topics

Over the years, the field of corporate citizenship has evolved from the philanthropic efforts of a few well-meaning companies to a fully-fledged, far-reaching strategic mechanism that achieves business and social value by harnessing the opportunities presented by the environmental, social, and governance aspects of business—and addressing the risks associated with them.

Now, not only does CSR encompass community involvement efforts like corporate giving and employee volunteering, it incorporates efforts that touch every aspect of the business, from the largest environmental impact to the most specific supplier requirement. By keeping up with all of the corporate citizenship news and topics—from issues like environmental sustainability to tactics like impact measurement—you can maximize the value creation offered by CSR now, and guide your company toward an even more sustainable and prosperous future.

The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship is here to help. Here is a sample of what we offer our members.

Corporate Citizenship Corporate citizenship refers to how a company exercises its rights, responsibilities, obligations, and privileges within our local and global societies.

Value of Corporate Citizenship The value of corporate citizenship reveals that strong corporate social responsibility and environmental performance is no longer simply a "nice to have" element of a company’s overall strategy.

Engaging Employees Employee engagement is essential to keeping workplace productivity high and turnover rates among employees low.

Impact Measurement Impact measurement and corporate citizenship create business value within a company and social value beyond.

Community Involvement Community Involvement includes in-kind and financial donations, employee volunteer days, or enduring partnerships that have the power to bring positive, measurable change to both your company and the communities in which you operate.

Environmental Sustainability Companies around the globe are realizing business value by increasing commitments and importance of environmental sustainability.

Sustainability Reporting An organizational sustainability report discloses environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance. By disclosing ESG goals and creating progress towards them, companies can improve reputation and build consumer confidence.

Supply Chain Management Responsible supply chain management presents companies with the opportunity to address inefficiencies and risks, and manage the quality of the goods and services they produce.

Responsible Corporate Leadership Responsible corporate leadership is an imperative for companies hoping to maximize both business and social returns from CSR initiatives—and it requires involvement from individuals at all levels of a company.
