Nearly one-third of the executive suite in the developed world says corporations are becoming less socially responsible. That view is especially prevalent in Western Europe where 52% of Germans, 46% of French, and 45% of Dutch say corporations have become less socially responsible over the past decade. This comes from research firm Penn Schoen Berland survey of more than 25,000 individuals from the general public and more than 1,800 business executives in 25 global markets on their opinions about the roles and responsibilities of corporations in society and in contributing to the economy.
Heart of the City’s Director, Carolyn Housman, discusses why there may be the perception that corporations are less responsible on CNBC’s breakfast show, Squawk Box.
