Your most important corporate citizenship client

Warren Buffet tells a story about Charlie Munger that illustrates a great life lesson,

“Charlie, as a very young lawyer, was probably getting $20 an hour. He thought to himself, ‘Who’s my most valuable client?’ And he decided it was himself. So he decided to sell himself an hour each day. He did it early in the morning, working on these construction projects and real estate deals. Everybody should do this, be the client, and then work for other people, too, and sell yourself an hour a day.”

At the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship, we are privileged to spend our days working with corporations to help them achieve their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) objectives—objectives that—if successfully achieved—will make the world a better place. This purpose informs our mission, strategies, and goals. We try to make your hours efficient by doing some of the work for you.

We know that to achieve success in today’s dynamic business environment, leaders must be sure that every person in their company is contributing to a corporate citizenship strategy that helps to deliver business value and social value. This is difficult and important work.
