After a grueling two days, filled with countless modules and discussion of issues, the underlying message is clear: CSR will have to be adopted by corporate America sooner than later. If you don't choose to now, legislation and competition will force you to soon enough.
In many ways, the position of CSR today makes me think of diversity. Two to three decades ago, people talked about diversity in the workplace as a relatively new concept. Some vouched for its benefits and others demanded a need for legislation overarching OSHA and EEO.
Today, it is a given at most employers. The difference though? Climate change will become a threat sooner than the battle for more African-American, Hispanic and Latino executives in corporate America's decision-making seats.
