The study was initiated by Verizon and the Campbell Soup Company to measure the benefits of their ESG programs. They commissioned IO Sustainability—a strategy, research, and public affairs firm—and Babson College, a business school, to produce the report. Their assignment was to evaluate and put numbers to CSR, sustainability, and ESG issues as they impacted the bottom line.

Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, yet it is the only cause of death among the top 10 in America without a way to prevent, cure, or even slow its progression.

More than 5 million Americans aged 65 and older are thought to have Alzheimer’s disease. This number is set to grow dramatically, as baby boomers are turning 65 at a rate of 10,000 people per day.
