Building value that last: How to manage the transition to integrative corporate social responsibility
What to expect from this masterclass:
Companies are increasingly pledging to redefine their purpose and business models to integrate social and environmental issues in their core strategies, processes and practices. However, this commitment often falls short and remains an empty promise. So, what steps can companies take to effectively manage the transition toward corporate social responsibility?
Engaging in corporate social responsibility can present challenges, and tensions, but effectively managing these challenges can provide opportunities for innovation, change and competitive advantage.
In this masterclass, Prof. Tommaso Ramus will discuss the essential steps companies should take to integrate social and environmental concerns and build lasting value. Through various examples, he will address how companies can recognize and overcome organizational bottlenecks that may hinder their efforts to integrate social and environmental concerns into their core strategy and operations.
