The 2009 State of Corporate Citizenship in the United States is the fourth biennial survey of the attitudes and actions of senior executives in small, medium and large businesses regarding corporate citizenship. The previous three surveys, conducted in 2003, 2005 and 2007, found that executives view corporate citizenship as a fundamental part of doing business but often allow aspirations to outpace actions. The 2009 survey explores in greater depth the challenges of integrating corporate citizenship into core business practices and how tough economic times have impacted these practices. For the first time we also explore how executives view new public policy challenges and their reaction to public expectations for better regulation of business. We thank The Hitachi Foundation for its generous support of this fourth biennial State of Corporate Citizenship survey and to the business executives and contributors who made this report possible.
