AN INTRODUCTION TO CSR FROM A
WATER AND FOOD SECURITY PERSPECTIVE
 
“From philanthropy to resilience, from green concerns to business continuity”
 
Slowing growth, dwindling resources, changing environment, and increasing inequality. All these changes challenge corporations to get involved somehow. Resilient communities mean paying customers. Lost resilience undermines prosperity. At a time when people are losing confidence, this is the moment to redefine your mission, respond to real needs and create lasting relationships. CSR and sustainability are rapidly becoming a business continuation issue.
This webinar welcomes the Humanitarian Water and Food Award (WAF). Based in Copenhagen, WAF has spent five years promoting ground-breaking successes in global water and food security. It is uniquely placed to demonstrate how some businesses are redefining CSR as a dynamic of a resilient society.

THIS WEBINAR IS FOR individuals and organisations interested in learning more about how business can contribute to, and benefit from, true prosperity through supporting water and food security

THE PROGRAM FEATURES:

? Our changed world: the concepts about business from the 90s that no longer apply.
? The water and food situation in the world, an overview.
? Hunger: what it does to humanity.
? What companies can do and are doing.
? How taking social responsibility can help your company attract talent and customers.
? What do people really want? The myth and reality of “economic man”.
? The WAF ladder – from philanthropy to CSR to shared value.
? Competition v. kindness. Community v. corporation. Do they have to compete? Lessons from WAF applicants.
? Moving forward.
