In this modern age, expectations of companies go much further beyond financial performance. CECP is thrilled to launch Investing in Society, a digital collection that endeavors to focus on the most crucial insights of how the sector is faring beyond where the Dow closes.

Investing in Society will be updated over the coming months so set a reminder to check back. Investing in Society organizes insights in five areas – Priorities, Performance, People, Planet, Policies. Each section offers multiple compelling and practical examples of business at its best.

To reflect the scope and depth of this recent activity, CECP pulled from myriad sources including CECP’s original research, thought leadership, findings from the 2017 Giving in Numbers Survey, hundreds of monthly discussions with more than 200 of the world’s largest companies, and conversations with leading experts and on-the-ground practitioners.
