Living Corporate Citizenship Summary

Living Corporate Citizenship: Strategic routes to socially responsible business by Malcolm Mcintosh

Corporate Citizenship matters. It is no longer just a moral imperative - it is now smart business. Investors, consumers, employees and communities are demanding Capitalism with a Human Face - it is time to deliver some corporate soul. Companies have responded with a new way of talking about business, but is this just a facade, behind which nothing has changed? Living Corporate Citizenship discusses these issues and examines the impact of eight major social responisibility codes, including the UN Global Compact. "There is money to be made from socially responsible and environmentally sustainable business, not just through engaging in PR gloss but through business innovation and creativity." Living Corporate Citizenship, p 11

Living Corporate Citizenship Reviews

"The UN Global Compact is an enormously important corporate citizenship initiative with participation from business, the UN, labour organisations and NGOs. For those people who are interested in how the Global Compact has evolved in its first few years this well researched book is a crucial source of information and learning." - David Bell, Head of People, Pearson GroupMember of Advisory Group to the UN Secretary General on the Global Compact "This is must reading for anyone wishing to keep up with the rapidly changing, and increasingly important, challenges of corporate citizenship." - John Gerard Ruggie, Kirkpatrick Professor of International Affairs, Harvard University "Finally we have a book on corporate citizenship that is neither spin nor a punt for the 'the one right way'. Steeped in rich experience and scholarship, this level-headed, but passionately written piece of work may well mark the coming of age of the corporate citizenship movement. This is also an indispensable handbook for business leaders in the developing world who struggle to comprehend the complexities of corporate responses to the multiple global crises that so threaten the environments within which business operates. Either read this book, or remain bewildered by the meaningless babble that dominates discussion about this crucial subject." - Professor Mark Swilling, Spier Institute, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa "In essence, "Living Corporate Citizenship "explores the relationship between globalisation and corporate citizenship and provides a useful guide to the UN Global Compact and other key international initiatives. For anyone trying to understand the corporate social responsibility and corporate citizenship agendas, this book offers useful case studies, thoughtful reflection and sound guidance." - Dr Vernon Jennings, Vice President Ethics and Social Responsibility, Stakeholder Relations, Novo Nordisk A/S "Living Corporate Citizenship "provides a useful roadmap for companies that are moving along the path toward greater corporate responsibility. Though lively case studies, the book illustrates just how managers can successfully lead their companies into living up to the nine principles of the Global Compact and provides a helpful analysis of the array of responsibility initiatives that emerged in recent years." - Sandra Waddock, Professor of Management, Carroll School of Management, Senior Research Fellow, Center for Corporate Citizenship, Boston College
