WASHINGTON, D.C. - The United States Chamber of Commerce will release a study on corporate citizenship and its impact on the business community.

The roll out of the study will take place July 14 at Chamber headquarters and is hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with the Center for Corporate Citizenship at Boston College and The Hitachi Foundation.

The survey was conducted in order to understand small and medium-sized business attitudes toward philanthropy, ethics, community relations and other business practices that fall under the collective heading of "corporate citizenship." Until now, most corporate citizenship surveys have focused solely on very large corporations. What this survey shows is that corporate citizenship is valued almost equally by all companies regardless of company size. The biggest obstacle that keeps companies from investing more in corporate citizenship activities is lack of resources, not ideology.

The survey will be used by corporate officials to benchmark their civic activities against their peers, by government agencies interested in understanding corporate behavior, and by nonprofit organizations interested in developing better relations with the business community.

Featured Speakers Include:

  • Suzanne Clark, Chamber Chief Operating Officer
  • Joseph Kasputys, chairman of The Hitachi Foundation Board of Directors
  • Barbara Dyer, president, The Hitachi Foundation
  • Brad Googins, Executive Director, The Center for Corporate Citizenship at Boston College
  • Steve Rochlin, Research Director, the Center for Corporate Citizenship at Boston College
