Main description:

In A Better World, Inc., Korngold shows companies and their executives how to profit by developing solutions to the world's most daunting challenges – those that governments cannot and have not addressed. Using case studies of various global companies from Nike to Pfizer to Vodafone and GlaxoSmithKline, A Better World, Inc. delineates best practices for corporations to maximize profits, decrease costs, and build the longer-term value of their companies by ensuring a more sustainable and humane world.

In declaring that 'only global corporations have the resources, global reach, and self-interest to build a better world,' Korngold shows how to ensure that this is a mutually beneficial and equitable relationship for business and society. A Better World, Inc. provides a roadmap to success, including stakeholder engagement; partnerships among businesses, NGOs, and governments; measurement, accountability and reporting; and effective corporate governance. Korngold also discusses the most powerful drivers for companies to further intensify their innovations in solving global challenges: consumers, employees, and investors.

Review quote:

"Through rich examples and a thorough analysis, A Better World, Inc. illustrates that it's not only possible for companies to do well while doing good, but it is increasingly essential." – Kenneth B. Mehlman, Partner, KKR

"A Better World, Inc. clearly demonstrates that a company and its investors all benefit when they are attentive to economic, environmental, and social factors. Korngold shows the power of market mechanisms in achieving a better world." —George L. Majoros, Jr., President, Wasserstein & Co., LP

"Korngold's informative book shows how businesses can improve both short term and long term profitability by promoting economic development, environmental sustainability, good health and education. A Better World, Inc. is a compelling resource for business people, board members, policy makers, faculty and students." —Michael Klausner, Nancy and Charles Munger Professor of Business and Professor of Law, Stanford Law School

"Drawing on twenty years of consulting experience, Alice Korngold offers an array of concrete examples in which large corporations have worked to find and implement solutions to social, environmental, and economic challenges. A Better World, Inc. will find a place on the bookshelves of human rights activists and business strategists alike, helping to bring these once divided worlds together." —Anne-Marie Slaughter, President and CEO, New America Foundation, and Bert G. Kerstetter '66 University Professor Emerita of Politics and International Affairs, Princeton University

"Korngold proves that businesses, not governments, are in the best position to innovate and solve the world's b
