Chestnut Hill, Mass., December 10, 2014 /3BL Media/ – The Carroll School of Management Center for Corporate Citizenship at Boston College is pleased to release its 2014 State of Corporate Citizenship, a unique research report that examines how executives view corporate citizenship and their firms’ performance in the environmental, social, and governance dimensions of business—and about how corporate citizenship contributes to business objectives. Conducted for the sixth time since 2003, the study finds that executives believe that corporate citizenship contributes to success, and plan to increase their investment in the future.
“This year, executives have issued a clear verdict: corporate citizenship delivers real business results,” said Katherine V. Smith, executive director at the Center for Corporate Citizenship. “The majority of executive respondents are choosing to meet the social and business challenges of our time by thoughtfully integrating corporate citizenship into business strategy—and by doing so are meeting objectives such as increasing market share and improving financial performance.”
The 2014 State of Corporate Citizenship key findings include:
- The majority of executive respondents, across all business types and industries, confirm that corporate citizenship helps them successfully achieve strategic goals, ultimately improving performance.
- For the first time in over a decade, the majority of executives anticipate resources for every corporate citizenship dimension to increase over the next three years.
The 2014 State of Corporate citizenship is just one of the research findings available to Center members. To learn more about this study, as well as other Center offerings and events, visit ccc.bc.edu.
