CECP’s Investing in Society: Focus on Policies

Investing in Society is the must-read source offering practical evidence of the corporate sector’s shift toward being increasingly purpose-driven. Developed from CECP’s premier research on, thought leadership for, and strategic engagements with more than 200 of the world’s largest companies, this digital release brings to light the state of Corporate Purpose in an evidence-based way and assesses Corporate Purpose-driven actions under the categories of Priorities, Performance, People, Planet, and Policies.

In the Policies section, CECP examines how increasing internal and external accountability in the last few years has led to slow but improving governance.

  • Driving inclusive, socially sustainable practices

While an increasing number of companies have a CSR/Sustainability committee that reports directly to the Board, other measures like percentage of women on boards, show slower progress.

  • Boards’ role in strategic planning

investors say that there are few metrics that enable them to gauge whether the board is equipped to help shape a business’s long-term strategy and value, as found by The Embankment Project for Inclusive Capitalism (EPIC).

Corporate leaders turn to Investing in Society as the authoritative source on developments in Corporate Purpose, bolstered by CECP’s insights on the actions that the world’s leading companies are taking to address environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues, identify and effectively meet stakeholder needs, and build a better world through business.
