introduced by Dr. Johannes Bohnen

CPR reconsiders the interface between business, politics and civil society. It shows how companies can employ their resources to advance the public interest, and also benefit from it. 

 

Thus, CPR is a business case. Through socio-political engagement companies invest in the foundations of their corporate success. In doing so, companies can endorse the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly Goal 16 “Peace, justice and strong institutions”. 

 

This platform aims to foster an informed debate about CPR and related topics. It is intended to forge a cross-sectoral community of actors that advocate for a constructive role of business in the public realm. BOHNEN Public Affairs serves as a moderator, but gives maximum ownership to all users.

"The central characteristic of CPR is that it encourages companies to assume 

responsibility for the preservation of the democratic system – with stabilization and risk prevention as particular points of emphasis. CPR goes beyond CSR because it recognizes that companies must help to solve global crises."
