A catalyst of collaboration for sustainability, with 16 years working with business, the UN and civil society on breakthrough corporate social responsibility (CSR) projects. Professor Bendell has been recognised by as one of the 2012 Young Global Leaders by the World Economic Forum, famous for its Davos summit of world leaders. In 1996 he helped conceive for WWF the organisational concept for the Marine Stewardship Council, which now covers over 6% of the world's wild catch under its sustainable fishery certification system. Through the first book on strategic cross-sector partnering in 1997, he helped inspire the then head of the UN Secretary General's office to launch what is now the largest CSR initiative in the world, the UN Global Compact. In 2007 at WWF he co-conceived the Finance Innovation Lab, a multi-stakeholder platform on sustainable finance. Dr Bendell has been recognized in both the Financial Times and International Herald Tribune as sparking greater engagement with sustainability by the luxury industry, through the ground-breaking WWF report in 2007, called Deeper Luxury. Keynoting at conferences around the world, Dr Bendell remains a thought leader in CSR and multi-stakeholder collaboration, with 4 books, 5 United Nations reports and over 100 other publications that are recognised by practitioners and academics as influential. Bendell is an Adjunct Professor at Griffith Business School, a Distinguished Visiting Professor at IE Business School, and the Founder of Lifeworth Consulting.

Corporate social responsibility is now an established agenda for large companies, with a new profession emerging that engages in the social and environmental contribution of business. How has this agenda emerged over time? What were the key events and actors? How has this new 'movement' of committed individuals been taking shape around the globe? Insights into these questions come from a review of the first half of first decade of the 21st century. 'The Corporate Responsibility Movement' compiles Lifeworth's highly praised Annual Reviews of Corporate Responsibility from 2001 to 2005.

It is introduced with a new overview by the lead author of those reviews, Dr Jem Bendell, in a piece that examines the trajectory of a new social movement in and around business. At a time of searching questions about the future of finance, Dr Bendell argues that a new concept of 'capital democracy' is emerging from within the community of people working towards corporate responsibility, which could be mainstreamed as a socially and environmentally enhanced system of economy. He calls on professionals, researchers and policy-makers to embrace an ambitious agenda for corporate responsibility and develop greater insight into acting together as a movement for change.

This book is an essential resource for business libraries, recording, analysing and contextualising some of the key events, issues and trends during this historic period in the development of the corporation.
