Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stung by corporate scandals, many companies have begun integrating terms like sustainable business, conscious capitalism, and corporate citizenship into their annual reports. Is it mere greenwashing or are businesses today really mending their ways? Can corporate social responsibility become the new gold standard in business? In Cause for Success, Christine Arena finds reasons to be optimistic while she examines new business paradigms for doing good and translating that good into profit. From Hewlett-Packard to British Petroleum to Stonyfield Farm and the Grameen Bank, the book profiles two case-study companies per chapter, exploring radical ideas about why ethics-driven companies are today's business trendsetters, how standing up for social justice garners competitive advantage, the bottom-line benefits of serving the world's poor, the potential business rewards of philanthropic partnerships, as well as how some of the worst corporate citizens have become some of the best.

Review:

"This book will excite you about the powerfully positive role that corporate America is capable of playing." Tony Schwartz, bestselling author of What Really Matters

Review:

"Cause for Success presents fascinating insights into a new paradigm for business success in the twenty-first century. It shows how a leading set of 'high purpose' companies moved beyond charitable giving and used constructive social engagement as the central means of improving their performance in the marketplace." Bradley Abelow, global head of operations of Goldman Sachs

Review:

"Christine Arena raises our sights and expectations. Cause for Success is a cause for cerebration as well as celebration." Richard D. Parsons, chairman and CEO of Time Warner

Review:

"I loved this book. It will help all leaders redefine success in broader, longer-term ways previously overlooked in traditional business analysis." Jonathan S. Lavine, managing director of Bain Capital

Review:

"An important call to arms for all business executives to recognize the vital responsibility they have in this world." Philip Rowley, president of AOL Europe

Review:

"When you Google 'success' the first hit should be Cause for Success! This is a rare book: interesting leaders, packed with useful knowledge, and well written and edited. Read it. Keep it close." John O'Neil, president of the Center for Leadership Renewal

Synopsis:

Arena and Banks give examples of large and small corporations who are embracing ethics, ecology, and social consciousness.
