Join your corporate philanthropy peers for a discussion on The ROI of CSR: Where to begin?, a joint meeting hosted by ACCP and Philanthropy Northwest. In order for a CSR program to align with and support a company’s core business strategy, the CSR team must be aligned and integrated with key functions with profit, loss, and cost control responsibilities. In some companies that is already happening; in others, the process has not yet begun.
You’ll hear Steve Rochlin, Co-CEO of IO Sustainability and lead author of Project ROI, discuss the potential ROI that CSR can deliver and what you should be doing to future proof your CR programs. (Hint: one of the first steps is to work internally with other departments to build integration.) You’ll also hear from a panel of CSR executives that are working with other departments on CSR and gain insight from their hits and misses.
