Stakeholder capitalism describes the emerging paradigm that businesses should operate not only for profit, but also in consideration of how their operations benefit or harm society.

Consumers and society at large are expecting more from their banks. Embracing these responsibilities can help shareholders, too. Stakeholder capitalism describes the emerging paradigm that businesses should operate not only for profit, but also in consideration of how their operations benefit or harm society. Acknowledging stakeholders, banks should take into account how their actions affect the environment, their employees, and the consumers who use their products. As a result, governance models must adapt to ensure that the business enterprise operates more ethically and transparently. This re-imagination of the purpose of a business has been embraced by powerful organizations such as the Business Roundtable and the International Business Council. During this webinar, participants will gain insights into corporate social responsibility best practices. In addition, bankers will be introduced to impact reporting standards, certifications, and frameworks that help build credibility and trust with stakeholders.
