Many of us have recently pondered the question: which vaccine is better—Pfizer, Moderna, or J&J? Those of us interested in sustainability may also want to know which of these companies has the best ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) performance?
It’s been 18 months and the global pandemic, alongside deep social and political unrest, remains central in the daily lives of most people around the world. Recently, Realized Worth had the opportunity to speak with the CEO of ACCP about their research on the impact of COVID-19 and the racial justice movement on corporate social responsibility. What we learned was encouraging!
When corporate managers talk about their company’s ESG and sustainability efforts it is most often now in the context of “our corporate sustainability journey.” The hallmarks of this journey are continuous improvement in the enterprise’s ESG performance indicators and ever-increasing and more robust disclosure to inform investors and other stakeholders.
The survey captures Hispanic DE&I in the areas of employment, procurement, philanthropy, and governance
WASHINGTON, September 14, 2021 /3BL Media/ - Hispanic inclusion in Corporate America stalled or reversed course during 2020, according to the 2021 HACR Corporate Inclusion Index (CII) released today. The report, themed “Hispanic Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion During Crisis,” is the result of research conducted over the course of the past year using data and survey responses from 92 participating corporations, the majority of which are Fortune 500 companies. The number of companies participating in the HACR CII increased by 32 percent over the prior year.
When we look back on the year 2020, not only are we going to remember it for the extraordinary events that took place, but also because it was a pivotal turning point for corporate action. In the face of the global pandemic and subsequent economic implications, social unrest, and mounting evidence of the impact of climate change on our lives and livelihoods, companies rose to the challenge like never before to meet the needs of employees, customers, and communities.

This week, as we reflect on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, host Danielle Holly and New York Cares Executive Director Gary Bagley have a conversation on how era defining moments from the 9/11 attacks to the current pandemic and racial reckoning bring on new waves of service and activism. They also talk about New York Cares’ increased focus on food insecurity, taking meaningful action on DEI, and why companies actually benefit more from designing service programs around nonprofit and community needs rather than their own business results.
The Evolution of Value Series - Part 1, by Wayne Visser
What we value as a society differs according to people, place and time. We have to ask, which society? And by that we may really mean: which tribe, class, culture or nation, in which part of the world, and in what period of history? A hunter-gatherer tribe in Southern Africa in 1,000 BC would surely value different things to an aristocratic ruling elite in Europe in the Middle Ages. That’s because value is subjective. The social scientists would say value is socially constructed or normative.
The European Union is a collaborative effort of 27 sovereign nations on the continent organized to marshal the resources and collective capabilities of these member states to address economic, military, trade, travel, and other important issues. The EU grew out of early post-WWII efforts to create a “common market” on the continent and to encourage closer peacetime relations among the disparate nations and cultures of western Europe.
