The Business in Society Handbook – 20th Edition (2017)

Trialogue is proud to present this 20th Handbook. Its name change, from The Trialogue CSI Handbook to The Business in Society Handbook,builds on the publication’s well-established reputation for providing comprehensive and reliable data and thought leadership on corporate social investment (CSI), while also responding to the increasingly holistic role of business within society; encapsulating, but not bound by the concept of CSI.

This commemorative edition reflects on progress, profiles the current state of the CSI sector in South Africa, and draws on two decades of insight to propose future trends and anticipated responsible business practices.
