Keynote Address: Mr. Steven Greenhouse, New York Times

Media Pressure, Then and Now

Media is vital to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as society has always had certain expectations of business. In today’s environment, the combination of traditional and social media is transforming the face of CSR, as citizens worldwide have unprecedented access to information on the behavior of corporations. Steven Greenhouse, from the New York Times, has been reporting on labor issues abroad and at home since 1995, bringing international attention to issues in the supply chain.

Join us in a lively discussion with Mr. Greenhouse about the evolving media pressures and consumer expectations over the last 10 years; and what companies are perceived as doing, or not doing, to avert this momentum.

Some questions that will be discussed:

  • Reactions from readers, with regard to increased international attention to supply chain issues, particularly regarding labor or worker safety.
  • Media perceptions of the status of company efforts to improving worker safety and human rights in developing countries.
  • Has media done an adequate job representing the buyer or company’s perspectives?
  • Consumer impressions, and how media has affected consumer purchasing decisions.

Moderated by:
Joe Sibilia, CSRWire
