The Bean Pod is joined this week by Luke Stephan, partner at Keene Advisors, to discuss the importance of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability in today’s business landscape. 97% of businesses consider sustainability “highly important,” and a third of consumers are now choosing to buy from brands that are doing social or environmental good.
Luke joined John and Erin of Corporate Ink to discuss why CSR and sustainability efforts are increasing (3:19), how companies are self-evaluating and receiving third-party certification (7:11), how changing regulatory policy could impact areas like the environment, corruption and labor (11:14) and how consumers can identify sustainable brands (18:00).
