Aug 21, 2018 12:25 PM ET

Investing in Society, CECP’s recently launched compendium of data, research, and case studies illustrates innovations in corporate efforts to solve the world’s most pressing problems. Divided into five sections – Priorities, Performance, People, Planet, and Policies – the collection of insights offers a far-reaching assessment of what leading companies are doing in each of the five focus areas.

In the Performance section, CECP asks, “How are large corporations balancing economic incentives and long-term decisions that allow them to create financial and societal impacts with self-sustainability?”

Investing in Society highlights the work CECP’s Strategic Investor Initiative, which is developing a platform for leading companies to develop, convey and deliver their long-term plans to long-term investors. SII will spark the movement of trillions of dollars of capital to companies demonstrating performance excellence over the long-term and will help build trust in capitalism as an engine of global prosperity.
