The State of Corporate Citizenship is a research project of the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship that examines how executives view corporate citizenship and their firms' performance in the environmental, social, and governance dimensions of business.
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. Whether you are an associate starting your career or a seasoned executive, leadership skills are necessary for success. CSR leaders envision and direct others towards better environmental, social, and business outcomes. As an effective corporate citizen, you must use your own unique competencies to strengthen existing partnerships, build cross-company buy-in, and ultimately act as an advocate for the importance of corporate citizenship as an essential component of company operations.
With corporate citizenship becoming a recognized business imperative, transformational leadership ensures that CSR is well integrated into a company's identity and culture and that it's being recognized for driving business value. Why? Because successful company leaders know that the outcomes and enduring partnerships achieved through corporate citizenship strategy enable performance not only for measuring progress toward a specific CSR
