Corporate Citizenship is a global consultancy and we are on a mission to harness the power of business to create a better future for everyone. We work with companies to accelerate change towards a future where our society and planet can thrive.
Business for Societal Impact (B4SI) is the globally recognised methodology used by hundreds of the world’s leading companies to articulate and measure the positive social impact they have in the world.
The B4SI Framework currently underpins the Community & Philanthropy question in the DJSI questionnaire, is reflected in the GRI standard and is recognised by the UN Global Compact as evidence for a company’s social impact narrative to stakeholders. It is a practical tool that enables a company to consider any activity it supports in society in terms of:
- The Inputs: What’s contributed?
- The Outputs: What’s happened?
- The Impacts: What’s changed?
The B4SI EMEA Network is made up of over 100 multinational companies, who apply the B4SI Framework to plan, implement, measure and report on their social impact activities.
Member companies are supported and managed via a team of account managers, who develop close relationships with their accounts to support on the above-mentioned activities, as well as identify opportunities to provide additional support and services in the areas of sustainability consulting.
