Corporate Social Responsibility, Valley View, OH

The traditional assets of any business include human capital, property, plant, equipment, and the customer base. Organizations continue to learn that business assets also include their global impact, their reputation, their interaction with ALL stakeholders, their ability to leverage resources in a sustainable context, and several other non-traditional assets.

Companies are increasingly adopting socially responsible business practices based on sustainable development to ensure efficiency, stimulate innovation, and create top-line growth. The “sustainable lean” approach and the Continuous Improvement Model (evolved from Francis Bacon, Walter Shewhart and W. Edwards Deming) provide an excellent framework for including corporate social responsibility in the business vision as well as the daily practice. This "new" approach to business must have total commitment in the “C-Suite” and reach into every area of the organization to ensure that corporate goals and objectives are aligned. Continue the discovery process of implementing corporate social responsibility by attending the AIChE Sept. 22 Meeting.
