What is CSR, Social Impact, ESG? A discussion on “Putting Purpose into Profits”

16 May 2022

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. Businesses in Australia have answered the call by implementing Corporate Social Responsibility / Social Impact strategies as part of their operations – no longer “good to do” but critically a benchmark by which businesses and corporate leaders are judged.

ACBC WA is pleased to initiate a series of discussions and learnings from businesses on why well planned and executed CSR programs bring tangible value for shareholders and employees, and fulfill societal expectations for businesses in the 21st century.

The first of these will be with Margaret Stuart, Director Corporate Affairs and Sustainability for Nestlé Oceania.
