Social Sustainability Event:
Designing a Corporate Transformation Movement"
Join us for an opportunity for PSU faculty, students and
community partners to contribute. This session will provide faculty, students,
and CEI staff a chance to explore potential collaborative opportunities. It
should be an exciting discussion.
More and more companies are beginning to incorporate the
principles and demands of corporate social responsibility. Yet many corporate
reformists believe that this is not enough. To them, the fundamental role of
corporations, as well as their governance, accountability, and legal rights,
must also be changed.
Corporate Ethics International has been funded by several
foundations to design a "strategic initiative on corporations." Their goal is
to develop a 10 year roadmap to achieve fundamental change in nature and power of
large companies. This will entail interviewing leading corporate reform
theorists, executives, legal scholars and activists to develop a vision of the
corporation of the future, the key institutional changes that must occur, the
framework for a long-term reform movement, the various tracks (legislative,
legal, marketplace, academic) and most strategic initiatives on those tracks.
A central component to this effort will be engagement with
various academic and advocacy groups to define the standards that should govern
the corporations of the future.
