Introduction to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Webinar
May 31 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT| Free
Concerns from and for customers, workforce, stakeholders, communities, and governments, as well as our resources and climate, have brought about a demand for transparent and socially-responsible practices and initiatives within organizations. Companies failing to consider their impact on the planet and their people will fall behind their competition as it becomes the standard.
It is simply not enough to maintain operational efficiency in business today. Organizations have a duty to recognize and address global causes for concern. Contributing to sustainable development is the main objective of Corporate Social Responsibility. This overarching goal is recognized by a combination of social equality, healthy ecosystems, and good organizational governance.
Introduction to Corporate Social Responsibility will provide an executive-level overview of CSR (also known as ESG or Sustainability) and will touch on what you need to know to ensure your organization is not only protected from CSR risks, but positioned to take advantage of CSR-related opportunities.
