Embracing Corporate Social Responsibility: Small Business Best Practices

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 | 11:30 AM

The Committee on Small Business will hold a hearing titled, “Embracing Corporate Social Responsibility: Small Business Best Practices.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 11:30 A.M. on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

For decades, small businesses have been leaders in delivering value for their communities, but they can face resource constraints in their efforts to scale up their sustainability practices. This hearing will examine how small businesses can integrate best practices that promote social good and sustainability at all stages, either as part of an initial business plan or later in the life of their company, and assess how the federal government can support and empower small business owners to not only make a profit, but be forces for social good.
