In an interview with Eco-Business on 26 October Jan-Peter Balkenende, professor Governance, Institutions and Internationalisation at Erasmus School of Economics, ellaborates on the position of businesses in creating a responsible society.
Balkenende may not be the Prime Minister anymore, but in his current role as professor and partner at the Corporate Responsibility division of EY he pursues his ideas about creating a sustainable environment for today's society. 'This means that companies and institutions are not only responsible for their own profits and well-being, but they also have a responsibility towards people and to create a better life for the next generation.'
