Report from the Committee for Economic Development

The Committee for Economic Development (CED), which created the Marshall Plan for reconstruction of Europe after WWII, has taken on the challenge of reconstructing corporate boardroom practices to promote sustainable business practices.  The CED concludes that "corporate boards and the leaders they select must integrate relevant societal concerns, such as environmental and human rights considerations, into corporate strategy to strengthen long-term competitiveness and the sustainability of both the corporation and the society in which it exists."
