Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship

Since 1985, the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship has been helping organizations align corporate citizenship objectives and business goals to create a more sustainable and prosperous future for all. Based under the Carroll School of Management at Boston College, the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship is a membership-supported organization dedicated to advancing the field of corporate citizenship. We combine the most valuable aspects of a professional network and the resources of a leading academic institution for 500+ member companies each year. We provide research, executive education, expert insights and tools, and networking opportunities to support your development as a leader and enable you to achieve greater business and social value.


At the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship, we help companies advance and elevate their corporate citizenship to deliver both business and social value, no matter where they are in their corporate citizenship journey. As the leading corporate citizenship membership community, we use our research-based knowledge, best-in-class learning opportunities, and dynamic peer network to help ALL companies know more about the global landscape of corporate citizenship; do more to optimize performance and value through the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) dimensions of firm performance—and thus achieve more as effective corporate citizens. As our members succeed, they bring their learnings back to the Center, creating a virtuous cycle of sustainable learning.

We are a learning community; we do not rate, rank, or endorse companies. We meet them where they are, help them to assess their impacts, challenges, and opportunities, and show them how to leverage their unique assets to address social and environmental issues—while achieving sustainable business goals.

We believe that the challenges facing the world today require active investment from both public and private sectors, and that all companies have the potential to evolve, grow, and help create the world in which we want to do business, and the world in which we want to live.
