With financial capitals still reeling from a crisis that redefined the entire world economy, countries are coming to terms with scarce resources, an increasingly wired generation, and the so-called “dysfunction of globalization”—issues that have been recognized in many important gatherings such as the World Economic Forum and the United Nations Summit. In this context, the business community must fully embrace its role as a powerful catalyst not just for growth, but inclusive economic growth. This is at the heart of the 2013 League of Corporate Foundations’ Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Expo.
Despite economic progress, the poor are getting poorer, and the vulnerable are left with very limited choices. To say that CSR is making a genuine impact, we should refocus, see beyond the margins, and transform the lives of marginalized and excluded communities. As we embark on our journey to sustainable development, LCF commits to bring CSR to where it is most felt and most needed. Our call: “Isang Bansa. Isang Bukas. Sabay sa Pag-unlad.”
