Strategic partnerships between MNEs and civil society: the post-WSSD perspectives
AbstractThis paper addresses the question of how business organizations, civil society organizations and government agencies can engage one another for 'boundary-spanning' dialogue and develop mutually beneficial 'working partnerships' in resolving the challenges of sustainable development. Over the past decade the concept of sustainable development has expanded to include the simultaneous consideration of economic growth, environmental protection and social equity in business and decision making. An increasing number of businesses have responded by engaging in corporate citizenship programmes to promote sustainable development. Strategic partnerships between civil society organizations and businesses are widely promoted as important new strategies, which will bring significant sustainable development benefits especially to developing countries. This interaction arises from an understanding of the need for comprehensive and integrated approaches to business, environmental and social issues that involve increasingly broader participation.
