The Corporate Citizenship Guide: Defining the Profession



Business leaders are increasingly prioritizing corporate citizenship as a vital role within business. When done well, this field and its professionals add significant value to a company’s brand and reputation, enhance stakeholder relationships, and provide both financial and societal returns. That’s why the Association of Corporate Citizenship Professionals is introducing The Corporate Citizenship Guide: Defining the Profession.

“Authentic corporate citizenship is a complex landscape to navigate, and one that companies cannot afford to get wrong. ACCP saw the need for a resource that identifies the scope of work led by corporate citizenship professionals inside companies across the country and the world. The Guide is the culmination of nearly two years of work by ACCP, an association representing more than 200 diverse companies that span from Fortune 100 corporations to mid-size private enterprises across industries.”
