Corporate responsibility: From strategy to good corporate citizenship

Deloitte Canada Insights podcast

Corporate responsibility: From strategy to good corporate citizenship

Companies have long recognized the importance of good corporate citizenship. But the definition of corporate responsibility is evolving. While it once meant looking after employees and supporting local charities, it now encompasses a much broader range of issues, from the labour conditions of low-cost country suppliers to the mitigation of global environmental impacts. What now distinguishes leading corporate responsibility practices is the way a company aligns its business operations with environmental, social and governance initiatives.

In this Deloitte Canada Insights podcast, Valerie Chort, who leads Deloitte's   Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability  practice, discusses what corporate responsibility means in today's climate of increased transparency and accountability. Learn how companies can assess their environmental, social and governance initiatives, develop a sound corporate responsibility strategy and, ultimately, focus their efforts on the areas that matter most — those that will create business value.
