Community Investment – Intended and Unintended Outcomes
Practical tools to mitigate risk and embed safeguards for effective and impactful corporate community investment.
Businesses are increasingly spending more time and money on community investment initiatives. The assumption is this is all GOOD. Good for communities, good for the environment … but is it?
Even the most well-intentioned CI initiatives can have negative unintended outcomes. The positive changes strategic corporate CI create are regularly highlighted, but it is just as important to be aware of what can go wrong.
This year CSR Asia’s annual Community Investment Forum will shed light on the risks of unintended outcomes of corporate CI. This includes corruption, ineffective corporate giving and misplaced employee volunteering. More than scare stories, the forum will provide CI professionals and NGO partners the practical tools to mitigate risk and embed safeguards for effective and impactful corporate community investment.
