Frost & Sullivan to Host Analyst Briefing on Corporate Social Responsibility and the Economic Downturn

Strained Budgets, Search for ROI

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ — The Environmental & Building Technologies practice at Frost & Sullivan, the Growth Partnership Company, is pleased to announce its 2009 Quarterly Analyst Briefing Presentation on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), to be held on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. PST.


CSR initiatives are under fire as the uncertain economy forces companies to re-evaluate spending. Companies must determine how limited assets are allocated and how much will fund current and future CSR projects. While CSR initiatives certainly have a return on investment, companies and investors may not have the patience in the current environment.

The CSR briefing will lead off with an evaluation of the current economic state of the environmental industry, followed by a discussion of key CSR stakeholders. The briefing will go on to provide tactics on how companies should move forward with CSR initiatives and then conclude with a live question and answer session.

The teleconference is a must for companies that currently have interests or plan to invest in CSR projects. CEOs, presidents, vice presidents, business development managers, strategic planners, marketing executives, research staff, and individuals from organizations with environmental interests in CSR will gain valuable insight from this presentation.

“As the North American economy continues to decline, and as companies revise budgets downward, management is forced to assess all corporate social responsibility programs,” explains Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Eric Meliton. “Corporations are faced with critical decisions about short-tem costs and limits versus long-term effects many CSR initiatives provide.”

To participate in this discussion, please email Stephanie Ochoa, Corporate Communications, at with the following information: your full name, title, company name, company telephone number, company email address, city, state and country. Upon receipt of the above information, a registration link will be emailed to you. You may also register to receive a recorded version of the briefing at anytime by submitting the aforementioned contact details.
