Smith Soc NYC Hosts Panel 'Considering Social Responsibility'

April 10, 2014

The NYC professional chapter hosted a panel on April 10 asking questions that should be important to all of those in business. Should business strive to be socially responsible? If so, how? Does business have a responsibility not only to create profit for its shareholders, but to actively protect the environment and attempt to improve the lives of those with whom it interacts?

Answering these questions were Andrew Savitz, founder of Sustainable Business Strategies and author of Talent, Transformation, and the Triple Bottom Line, and Luke Johnson, Chairman of Risk Capital Partners and a weekly columnist for the Financial Times were the guests on the panel. Both of them examined the basic assumptions underlying the philosophy of socially responsible business, as well as its practical challenges and possibilities. Howard Husock, the Manhattan Institute's Vice President for Policy Research moderated the discussion.
