State of Corporate Citizenship
The State of Corporate Citizenship 2017 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. This longitudinal study examines how corporate citizenship efforts contribute to business objectives including increasing market share, engaging employees, and enhancing reputation.
Key findings reveal that corporate citizenship delivers real results:
> The majority of executive respondents report they have increased, or plan to increase, efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in response to the Paris Agreement.
> The majority of executives anticipate resources for every corporate citizenship dimension to increase over the next three years.
> The majority of executive respondents, across all business types and industries, confirm that corporate citizenship helps them successfully achieve strategic goals, ultimately improving performance.
