We are at a time of change in the corporate and nonprofit sectors that is historic in its proportions. Never has the line between profit and charity been so blurred. Never has the pace of change been more rapid. And never has organizational strategy and collaboration been more creative.
Countless leaders are now taking an active role in how their companies identify solutions, lessen environmental burdens, and seize opportunities to solve social problems in ways that align with their capacities as businesses.
While advances in corporate social engagement have been inspiring, the economic challenges of the last four years, as well as global industrial integration, also promise a corporate future that may be very different from the past. If community investment is to follow profits, where will profits be found? What industries will ascend? What are the characteristics of the next generation that will be leading these corporate institutions? How will the leaders of corporations in emerging economies define the problems and solutions using the lens of their own cultures and their own priorities?
This report steps outside the boundaries of what we know today and challenges readers to consider the larger forces at play, which will profoundly alter the landscape on which corporate social engagement currently exists.
