Conclusions from the Water, Sanitation, Hygiene Forum

Blog

On Feb. 2 BCLC and the World Business Council on Sustainable Development (WBCSD) hosted a forum about innovating in the WASH sector (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene).

Here are five key conclusions:

1. The technology needed to meet the access issues that millions of people face around the world currently doesn't exist.

2. It is imperative to use business skills sets and knowledge to move toward long-term, country-owned, systematic approaches to WASH programs (verses project-by-project implementation).

Calling on America’s Sustainable Communities

In the past three years, nine U.S. communities have received national honors for their efforts to blend economic, environmental, and social priorities and to advance the community’s overall sustainability and success.

Reflect, Recognize, Reignite

Summary: 

Reflecting on the state of business and society relations is important, but so too is recognizing the role of the corporate citizenship field.  There have been significant shifts in philosophy and strategy this year.  More companies than ever are seeing their vital roles in contributing positively to society. The walls are breaking down, and companies are self-consciously trying to create not just economic capital, but social value as well.

And the 2010 Corporate Citizenship Awards Dinner, coming as it does after this grueling election season, couldn’t arrive at a better time to reignite and jump start some of the ideas and initiatives that have been tabled for the past few months.
