Corporate Foundation Briefing with ACCP: The ROI of Corporate Responsibility - Where to Begin?

Thursday, April 26, 2018
9:30am - 1:30pm CDT
Comcast, 10 River Park Plaza, St. Paul

Description: Return on Investment (ROI) is a performance measure that typically compares the financial benefits that accrue from an investment, project, or program relative to the investment’s cost. It is widely used because of its versatility and simplicity.

There have been many studies over the past 15 years that have drawn correlation between a company’s investment in Corporate Responsibility (CR) and a company’s bottom line results. Project ROI: Defining the Competitive and Financial Advantages of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability is a landmark research report that examined these studies.  The conclusion? Corporate Responsibility provides tangible financial value to a company’s bottom line. The catch? In order for results to be realized, a company’s Corporate Responsibility program must be aligned with and support the company’s core business strategy.

In order for a Corporate Responsibility program to align with and support a company’s core business strategy, the Corporate Responsibility team must be aligned and integrated with key functions with profit, loss, and cost control responsibilities. In some companies that is already happening; in others, the process has not yet begun.

Join us on April 26, for “The ROI of CR: Where to begin?” a joint meeting hosted by ACCP and the Minnesota Council on Foundations.

You’ll hear Steve Rochlin, Co-CEO of IO Sustainability and lead author of Project ROI, discuss the potential ROI that Corporate Responsibility can deliver and how to think about aligning to your company’s core.

There will also be time for you to discuss what you are doing, what you need to do, and what you need to know.

Lunch will be provided at the meeting.

This event is a special issue briefing as part of MCF's Corporate Community Affairs Professionals Network programming.
