Value of Corporate Citizenship


Corporate citizenship delivers value when companies optimize their core competencies to address opportunities, goals, and operating context issues in the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) aspects of business. Research reveals that strong corporate social and environmental performance is no longer simply a "nice to have" element of a company's overall strategy. In today's global economy, corporate responsibility is a business imperative. When companies create comprehensive CSR platforms that optimize their core competencies and work to address operating context issues, opportunities, and goals, they deliver measurable business value. As corporate citizenship professionals, we create both business and social value in countless ways, from establishing innovative community involvement partnerships to engaging with stakeholders to assess environmental, social, and governance (ESG) impacts and opportunities.

We know that realizing the full value of corporate responsibility cannot be achieved in isolation. The continued communication between company and community stakeholders, c-suite executives, and individuals throughout a company's value chain is an integral component to both understanding and furthering the value we create through corporate citizenship. While it may have once been seen primarily as an opportunity for risk mitigation and reputation enhancement, our work is now recognized as a practice with both social and economic significance.
