‘This book is a MUST for all business leaders, mid-level executives and those aspiring to lead. As we are living in a world in which we are increasingly interconnected globally, every act we take has consequences not only on our employees and our customers, but also the communities we operate in and as those that we don’t. Readers will learn the key strategies and tactics necessary to build a 21st century company that is resilient and successful but also one that balances the need to give back, respect the environment and be appealing to the next generation.’|‘At Suffolk, we are always challenging the norm and pushing the boundaries of what is possible. To continuously innovate and service others is a pledge we make to our clients, partners, communities and each other. 21st Century Corporate Citizenship and Suffolk share the same values and commitment to excellence, which is why we are such strong supporters of this book. 21st Century Corporate Citizenship is a tremendous resource for individuals who work in the environmental and social investment field and who are actively pursuing excellence and innovation in everything they do.’|‘At Bose we’re best known for our audio products. But our true passion? Discovering new and better solutions than anything that’s come before. We “always dream of things that are better, and think of ways to reach those things.” 21st Century Corporate Citizenship is a hand book that can help business people understand how to dream and implement better and more sustainable futures for their companies and for us all.’|‘Developing a high performing corporate citizenship strategy requires a thoughtful combination of new incentives, risk management, compliance, and re-framing to identify and capture new opportunities for your company and its stakeholders. Stangis and Smith have produced a book that is part “how to,” part compendium of insight from many successful practitioners, and part reminder of the value of fostering motivation that underlies any successful venture. It is likely to become one of those references you turn to again and again for useful guidance.’|‘For any company looking to optimize their corporate sustainability strategy, this book is a must have. Very simply, it’s the best one I’ve ever read.’|The authors, who work in corporate citizenship, offer a handbook that shows executives how corporate citizenship builds reputation, delivers value to the bottom line, and mobilizes an organization’s employees and customers. They explain how to connect corporate citizenship to business purpose and strategy, create advantage in the marketplace, understand the effects of corporate citizenship on stakeholders, set up and organize a corporate citizenship program, integrate it with the supply chain and procurement function, create a more sustainable operation, define a corporate giving program, communicate the message to drive change, and build on success.
