These corporations partner with governments, non-government organisations
(NGOs) and other international organisations to achieve 'triple bottom line'
results: not only to improve their reputations and profits, but also because
it is the right thing to do.
The series highlights the issues: poverty, climate change, human rights,
corruption, education and health care among others, and explores innovative
strategies and partnerships that place corporate citizenship at the centre
of international business.
Each episode showcases businesses that are setting new benchmarks for measuring
business, social and environmental success (triple bottom line).
Responsible Business explores the role of the corporation in advancing
sustainable economic and social development, and solving global problems
through multi-stakeholder partnerships.
Promoting the principles put forward by the United Nations Global Compact,
the series presents companies that demonstrate leadership in adopting these
principles throughout their businesses.
