Canadian Author And Founder Of Impakt Urges Companies To Stop ‘CSR Lite’ And Start To Solve Social Problems
by Christopher Marquis, Forbes
There is increasing attention to businesses delivering value to all stakeholders, and the benefits of sustainability and equity in the workplace. However, it is not clear the extent to which such pronouncements are authentic, or at least authentically implemented.
When businesses have serious problems, they find people who have experience in successfully solving similar problems. When it comes to helping to address important social problems, businesses make decisions about how this will be done based on having no experience with the problems they are trying to help solve.

I hope that Change for Good will inspire corporations to stop practicing what I call “CSR lite” — when businesses do the minimum amount required to be seen to be responsible rather than making a meaningful commitment to helping to solve social problems and taking action to make this happen. Instead, corporations have the opportunity to benefit from helping to actually solve social problems.
