Customers and consumers today expect from your business that it proves to be a good corporate citizen. Therefore, solutions are required that bring value equitably to both your company and society as a whole. Only those who are perceived as credible, creative, and powerful actors are seen and heard in society. It is therefore becoming increasingly important that a brand also encompasses a socio-political dimension.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has become a nice-to-have that has too short a reach to describe the complex relationship of your company with the larger society around you. Companies are political actors, because as employers, innovators and lobbyists they affect the structures of the communities in which they operate. We replace the old concept with a new one: Corporate Political Responsibility (CPR). (see Publications)
The major issues in the political arena between the government, parliament, organizations and academia pose a major challenge for many companies.
