This article discusses the criticism of the CSR/sustainability practice, and also illustrates in what ways companies, such as GE, are making valuable simultaneous contributions to society and the bottom line.

As adults, we realize it's limited in its powers, but yet, the idea of glancing into the future, finding answers to questions, and gaining security in knowingness still grips us.  In business, that's why we have business plans, models, schedules and risk analysis.  But it's interesting to question if these traditional approaches are serving us?
