Collaboration for Impact
Insights Report

New research by Corporate Citizenship reveals that a new era of collaboration is upon us. As companies aspire to achieve greater societal impact, they are moving away from traditional partnership models and seeking out new models of collaboration.
Five models of effective collaboration were identified in the research:

The Conductor - A single company collaborating with a number of not-for-profit partners to solve a specific challenge. 
The Alliance - A company or group of companies that have come together to tackle a specific industry issue.
The Assortment - Several companies across industries working together, often alongside not-for-profits and/or government bodies, to solve a particular societal issue, applying their resources, skills and expertise as relevant.
The Engager - A company that engages and collaborates with its clients or customers through specific corporate responsibility initiatives or a commercial relationship to solve sustainability issues. 
The Selector - A company that selects and collaborates with parties with varying but specific expertise across a range of fields to address a societal issue. This collaboration is the most mature model and involves taking a holistic approach to solve an issue.

Service spotlight
Benchmarking: our Better Business Benchmark tool  

We believe businesses can use benchmarking to better understand how they compare to others in corporate responsibility, identifying areas of strength, gaps to best practice and opportunities to differentiate from peers
We offer a range of benchmarking support options including custom qualitative benchmarking reports and our new quantitative tool - the Better Business Benchmark. 
Our Better Business Benchmark uses a proprietary framework comparing the performance of businesses across ten essential aspects of corporate responsibility, addressing 82 issues. The criteria in the tool are informed by external standards, as well as our 20+ years of experience working with clients to help them benchmark and measure sustainability performance.
