Corporate Citizenship Defined

(Return to SCC Home)


"Corporate citizenship is the sum of the operating practices that a company develops in its relationships with its primary and secondary stakeholders, including owners, customers, employees, suppliers/allies, communities, and governments, as well as company-specific stakeholders.

Sandra Waddock, Professor of Management, BC Carroll School of Management
Leading Corporate Citizens: Vision, Values, Value Added
-  McGraw-Hill 2002

"Corporate citizenship refers to the way a company integrates basic social values with everyday business practices, operations and policies.  A corporate citizenship company understands that its own success is intertwined with societal health and well being. Therefore, it takes into account its impact on all stakeholders, including employees, customers, communities, suppliers, and the natural environment."
