Corporate Social Responsibility
Articles, blogs, brochures and interesting links reflecting the social responsibility of global companies, how they report the social impact of their actions and their efforts towards sustainability. From Corporate Social Responsibility to Corporate Philanthropy and Sustainable Capitalism: are we just inventing words or are we really changing the meaning of “value creation” in a holistic perspective? Can we turn the “charismatic leader” of the 20th Century into the “humane leader” of the 21st back to leadership, entrepreneurship and statesmanship?

Corporate Social Responsibility as an integrated part of corporate strategy even in tough economic times
Companies that succeed in incorporating their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) goals into their overall corporate strategy reap reputational, human capital and operational benefits. CSR is no longer a PR gimmick or a notion to be paid lip service to: it is becoming part of risk mitigation and opportunity-seeking strategies.
• How can corporations ensure that CSR genuinely becomes part of their organizations' culture and day-to-day operations?
• How can triple bottom line reporting be used as a progress-tracking tool for corporate performance?
• Can we prevent that CSR obligations should become lesser priorities in difficult times?

'Not to share wealth with poor is to steal': Pope slams capitalism as 'new tyranny'

'Not to share wealth with poor is to steal': Pope slams capitalism as 'new tyranny' | Corporate Social Responsibility | Scoop.it

RT New, November 28, 2013

▶ Pope Francis has taken aim at capitalism as "a new tyranny" and is urging world leaders to step up their efforts against poverty and inequality, saying "thou shall not kill" the economy. Francis calls on rich people to share their wealth.

The existing financial system that fuels the unequal distribution of wealth and violence must be changed, the Pope warned. 

"How can it be that it is not a news item when an elderly homeless person dies of exposure, but it is news when the stock market loses two points?" Pope Francis asked an audience at the Vatican.

The global economic crisis, which has gripped much of Europe and America, has the Pope asking how countries can function, or realize their full economic potential, if they are weighed down by the debts of capitalism... http://rt.com/news/pope-francis-capitalism-tyranny-324/

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, December 5, 2013 3:59 PM

I Love the questions and comments from this Pope. Capitalism as 'new tyranny", Casino Capitalism. in my opinion, he has  pushed aside issues that divide people based on emotional dynamite to focus on the real issue. That is, how are we goingto survive as a race if we treat each other like barbarians?

Nuno Gaspar de Oliveira's curator insight, January 13, 2015 7:03 AM

“A new tyranny is thus born, invisible and often virtual, which unilaterally and relentlessly imposes its own laws and rules,” the 84-page document, known as an apostolic exhortation, said. 

"To all this we can add widespread corruption and self-serving tax evasion, which has taken on worldwide dimensions. The thirst for power and possessions knows no limits", the pope’s document says.
