The Trialogue NPO Directory in the Business in Society Handbook

In 2015 and 2016, Trialogue published The Funders Guide to social development in South Africa. Described as an outstanding publication and valuable resource by funders, this year, a directory of NPOs will be incorporated into The Business in Society Handbook, to ensure a more holistic offering and ease of reference for corporate funders of social development.

About the Business in Society Handbook

For almost two decades, The Trialogue CSI Handbook has been the authoritative publication on corporate social investment (CSI) in South Africa.

In celebration of the 20th edition, this publication will be renamed The Business in Society Handbook in 2017. This change of name builds on the publication’s well-established reputation, while also responding to the increasingly holistic role of business within society, encapsulating, but not bound by, the concept of CSI.

Frequency and distribution

The Business in Society Handbook is an annual publication. The 2017 edition will launch in November.
5 000 copies are printed and distributed nationally to:

  • Companies and state-owned enterprises
  • Non-profit organisations
  • Provincial and national government departments
  • Institutions of learning, including business schools libraries
  • CSI and development-related industry events
  • Trialogue events, including our annual Business in Society Conference, quarterly corporate forums and training workshops

Readership of the handbook exceeds the number of printed copies, as one copy serves as a reference for many people within an organisation.

The annual publication is often retained and back copies are regularly interrogated for bench marking and research purposes. The 2016, the publication was accessed worldwide more than 5 000 times.
