Since 2003, the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship has examined in the State of Corporate Citizenship study how executives view corporate citizenship and their firms' performance in the environmental, social, and governance dimensions of business. Over the past 14 years, we’ve seen executives come to fully appreciate the vital role that corporate citizenship plays in achieving key business goals.

In the 2017 study, the majority of executives report that their companies experience greater business success when corporate citizenship is integrated into business strategy. Key factors for success are selecting issues that make sense to their people and that make the best possible use of their know-how and other resources and investing over the long term.  Most predict that they will allocate more resources to corporate citizenship programs than they have in the past.
