The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship recently released a study on the impact of companies investing in environmental and social programs, delivering optimistic results for the corporate giving professional. According to the data, employee volunteering, sustainability and corporate giving programs help contribute to important business goals in addition to social good.

For the first time in more than a decade, executives predict that investment will increase over the next three years for every dimension of corporate citizenship. In addition, the majority believe that corporate citizenship:

  • contributes to company success
  • returns value to shareholders and
  • merits additional investments.
