Jan 1, 2013

The purpose of this report is to analyse what motivates corporate social investment philosophies and initiatives among South African businesses. The report is based on the views of 41 senior business leaders representing 39 companies, the majority of which are large and globally influential companies publicly held and traded on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE). The report further examines the findings of the research in the context of emerging trends from other studies and concludes by exploring the implications of these trends for socio-economic development in South Africa.
