If you’ve come here looking for information on the Corporate Responsibility Executive Institute (CREI), you are in the right place. The program is no longer being offered.

After extensive research on the professional development needs of seasoned Corporate Citizenship / CSR executives, CREI was developed in 2014 and launched in 2015 in partnership with the University of Notre Dame. The program ran for three years (2015, 2016, and 2017) and trained a myriad of executives across several industries, including individuals who elected to apply for the designation of Certified Corporate Responsibility Executive (CCRE).

The field of Corporate Citizenship has undergone dramatic change throughout the years, and the pace has accelerated over the last few years. ACCP takes our role seriously in providing you with relevant, current, and actionable educational programs. Doing this right requires frequent assessment of the programs offered and acknowledgement when a change in course is needed.

There is a clarion call from the C-suites of most companies to align Corporate Citizenship / CSR to business goals and objectives. ACCP is now exploring how we help you answer that call. One of the ways we are currently doing that is through our partnership with I O Sustainability. Together, we’ve created a process that allows companies to assess the potential business value (ROI) of their Corporate Citizenship / CSR efforts. Have a look and contact Maryann Fiala if you’re interested in learning more. You can also find relevant content to engage with through ACCP’s event offerings.
