A Responsabilidade Social das Empresas (RSE) nasce a partir dos anos 1990, quando temas como direitos humanos e do trabalho, meio ambiente e Desenvolvimento Sustentável (DS) são discutidos entre os países membros das Nações Unidas. A partir daí foi criado um grande número de normas e instrumentos para consolidar a RSE e o DS, colocados como prática de gestão. Paralelamente, mudanças na economia global e na capacidade resolutiva do Estado com relação a questões sociais (como a Saúde), tornaram importante o papel social do setor privado, através de políticas e práticas de RSE e do Investimento Social Privado (ISP). A pesquisa se justifica pelo fato de que cabe ao setor público garantir a Saúde como um direito de todos e a definição de Políticas Públicas de Saúde e ao setor privado contribuir para que isso seja efetivado. Mas para que o setor privado contribua efetivamente, e tenha a Saúde como uma das metas da RSE e do ISP, ele necessita ser adequadamente abordado e ter suporte especializado na sua gestão, o que por sua vez pode tornar esses programas mais adequados às realidades locais nas quais as empresas estão inseridas ou dispostas a atuar. Complementarmente, esses programas de RSE podem contribuir para a sustentabilidade do próprio SUS. O presente trabalho tomou como questões específicas: a ampliação do conhecimento sobre a RSE e o ISP em Saúde e as suas linhas de ação; os contextos e as representações sociais dos atores envolvidos na definição...

Esta dissertação traça uma trajetória, evitando, no entanto, uma linha evolucionista, dos termos e conceitos que foram usados no decorrer da história para identificar as intervenções das empresas em ações sociais, desde as atuações assistencialistas até a atuação direta em projetos, com criação de institutos e fundações ligados às empresas, compartilhando não só investimentos financeiros, mas conhecimento, tecnologia e mão de obra especializada. Mas, como veremos, só isso não é suficiente para que uma empresa seja caracterizada como socialmente responsável. Como parâmetro, será trabalhada a diferenciação entre responsabilidade social empresarial (RSE) e investimento social privado (ISP), usando as definições e modelos do Instituto Ethos de Responsabilidade Social e do Grupo de Institutos e Fundações e Empresas (GIFE), respectivamente. Como estudo de caso, será apresentada a GTECH Brasil, empresa multinacional do ramo de loterias online, que, para realizar ações sociais, criou o Instituto Gtech de Cidadania e Cultura (IGCC), em 2000. A empresa, fazendo uso da verba disponível de incentivo à cultura, com a Lei Rouanet, realizou um projeto corporativo de arte-educação, chamado Projeto Asa, que tinha por foco trabalhar com jovens de sete a 17 anos...

No cenário de crescente envolvimento do setor privado em questões sociais públicas, em que a distinção entre o público e o privado torna-se cada vez mais tênue e empresas são conclamadas para a solução de demandas sociais, disseminam-se práticas de Responsabilidade Social Corporativa (RSC), e organizações multinacionais passam, gradativamente, a desenvolver iniciativas sociais além de suas fronteiras, enfrentando desafios inusitados. O Investimento Social Privado (ISP), que é definido na literatura brasileira como o repasse de recursos voluntários a projetos sociais e que representa a dimensão da RSC focada na comunidade e nas ações sociais voltadas ao interesse público (GIFE, 2013), vem se tornando objeto constante de pesquisas no Brasil. Dentre os desafios relacionados ao ISP, aponta-se a lacuna de estudos que analisem a internacionalização do Investimento Social Privado, fato este particularmente significativo visto que multinacionais brasileiras vêm expandindo suas práticas sociais para além das fronteiras do país (NOGUEIRA; SCHOMMER, 2009). Neste contexto, a presente pesquisa qualitativa e exploratória, realizada através de estudos de casos múltiplos em quatro representativas multinacionais brasileiras que investem socialmente em países estrangeiros nos quais mantêm atividades...

Pós-graduação em Ciências Sociais - FFC; In this dissertation, we analyze the strategies , discourses and actions of the Institutes Gife and Ethos to the social sphere . For this purpose, the analysis is focused on reasons why these two organizations of such magnitude, Gife and Ethos has been created in Brazil aiming at a distinct social entrepreneurs role associated to traditional philanthropy and welfare performed up to then. With this goal, have been analyzed both the historical conditions and key actors that made possible the raising of a new business activity expressed in the ideology of CSR and Private Social Investment policies. Thereto, due the 1980s political opening, entrepreneurs or fractions of the capitalists was forced to redefine their strategies of domination. They could not have the coercion as predominant element, requiring strategies to more consensual nature new political arrangements in this political framework. With the implementation of neoliberalism in the country, the social activism of entrepreneurs began gaining prominence and strength, since the state policy for the social area developed, particularly in the 1990s, through the shrinkage of state liability against social problems, allowing for the intervention of the private sector in this area . In this scenario...

The post-WWII period has seen a radical change in the growth patterns and composition of American cities, as a decentralized form of real estate development, conventional development, has become the dominant real estate development paradigm. As conventional development has become pervasive it has contributed to a host of negative economic, social, and environmental impacts. Growing dissatisfaction and concern over these negative impacts has given rise to development models that seek to accommodate the demand for new built space through alternative spatial forms, development locations, development practices, and development products. Collectively called "alterative development", these development models seek to minimize or eliminate potential negative social and environmental externalities caused by real estate development. While alternative development has gained some traction in the real estate development industry, it still faces significant barriers. Chief among these barriers is the lack of access to reasonably priced debt and equity capital. As the availability of financial capital is one of the key factors determining what gets built, when, and where, the lack of access to capital for alternative development has profound effects on the economic...

Although many studies indicate that both the level and composition of public spending are significant for economic growth, the results in the empirical literature are still mixed. This paper studies the importance of country sample selection and expenditure classification in explaining these conflicting results. It investigates a set of fast-growing countries versus a mix of countries with different growth patterns. The regression specifications include different components of public expenditure and total fiscal revenues, always considering the overall government budget constraint. Total public spending is first disaggregated using a definition that classifies public spending as productive versus unproductive components, an a priori criterion that is based on the expected impact of public spending items on the private sector production function. After empirically confirming the validity of this definition in the panel analysis, the authors suggest and test an alternative definition of "core" public spending that may be more appropriate for developing countries. The empirical analysis shows that the link between growth and public spending...

In carrying out the program for investment climate reform, Orissa State has to keep three things uppermost: It s critical to strike the right balance between private and social interests so that both are mutually reinforced and growth is equitable and inclusive. 2) Both the implementation capacity of government and the political economy of reforms will require appropriate prioritization of reforms with a clear identification of short-, medium-, and long-term actions. Building capacity in the public sector to analyze IC issues and formulate and implement policies will have to be an integral part of the reform process. 3) The credibility of policies and reform programs is key. Policymakers must put their full force behind a speedy and robust implementation of the reforms, by developing a credible action plan with time-bound outcomes and a monitoring mechanism to track reforms.

The drop in foreign direct investment (FDI) flows to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region over the past three to four years stems in part from the aftermath of the recent global economic crisis, and in part from the uncertainties created by the political and social changes in the region that have characterized the so-called Arab Spring. However, the medium-term outlook may be more positive as greater governmental transparency and less cumbersome business environments are expected to foster FDI, stimulate entrepreneurship, and create jobs. The Global Investment Promotion Best Practices (GIPB) 2012 report presents well-timed and useful insights into the capacities of IPIs to perform their investment facilitation function. Thus a careful analysis of GIPB findings can be important in helping MENA Investment Promotion Intermediary's (IPIs) introduce targeted improvements that will enable them to increase FDI flows into the region. The GIPB 2012 assessment also detected a number of procedural hitches, such as difficulty in contacting an IPI or a relevant project manager in spite of repeated attempts...

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2004, the International Finance Corporation (IFC) expanded its sustainable development impact through private sector project financing operations and advisory activities. This year the Board of Directors approved a number of investments and maintained close oversight of development and implementation of IFC strategy. The Board was heavily involved in discussion of IFC's strategic directions, which outline the overall framework for future IFC activities. The Board urged IFC to collaborate more closely with other World Bank Group institutions, especially in providing technical assistance on the business climate and private sector development. In this regard, Directors were pleased to note the increased cooperation between IFC and IDA in Africa. The Board also reviewed country-specific operations and discussed 15 joint World Bank-IFC-MIGA country assistance strategies and related products. Directors noted the challenges in both maintaining profitability and increasing development impact...

The Government of Liberia is in the process of developing a new Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS) that is intended to determine its path toward middle-income status. One central aspect of the strategy is likely to be a stronger focus on inclusive growth. This will mean that higher priority will be placed on growing the local private sector, and broadening the base of the economy. Public-private partnerships (PPPs) in infrastructure and services can be a key instrument for achieving these goals especially in an economy like Liberia. The analysis contained in this study identifies the steps toward establishing PPPs as both a policy instrument and method for deepening private sector investment in Liberia. Liberia's rich natural resource endowments have played a fundamental role in the way in which the economy has developed, and in the way in which Government manages private investment in extractive industries. The Government itself has a long history of entering into concession contracts with private investors and operators. Firestone rubber first signed a concession agreement in 1926...

Publication of this edition of the little data book on private sector development coincides with continued rising interest in private sector development and growing understanding of the links between private sector development and economic growth. Well functioning finance markets and a robust private sector play critical roles in increasing productivity and growth and in spreading equality of opportunity. The availability of cross-country data on the business environment has expanded rapidly in recent years, including data from the World Bank's doing business project and enterprise surveys. These data sources report on the scope and types of regulations that enhance, and constrain business activity and provide information on business owners' assessments of the business environment. The data have led to new research, enabled benchmarking, and informed the reform process in many developing countries. Included in this guide are indicators on the economic and social context, the business environment, private sector investment, finance and banking, and infrastructure. Though not all relevant variables can be included in a pocket guide, the indicators that are included provide users with a general understanding of the private sector in each country. Indicators displayed in the tables are defined in the glossary...

The Independent Evaluation of International Finance Corporations (IFC's) Development Results (IEDR) is the annual flagship report of the Independent Evaluation Group (IEG). It reviews IFC's effectiveness in supporting private sector development and its contributions to economic growth and poverty reduction, as well as to environmentally and socially sustainable development. The main purpose of the IEDR is to provide an independent assessment to the Executive Board, IFC Management, and the wider development community about recent trends in IFC's performance, and to stimulate debate and action on IFC strategy and operational processes going forward. The report also serves as a source of knowledge and learning about private sector development, in general, and about development impact, more specifically. This year's IEDR contains two main themes. The first is a review of the development results achieved by IFC-supported operations. On the investment side, this means looking at how well operations that reached early operating maturity during 2005-07 performed...

Uganda's economic growth since the late 1980s has resulted largely from restoring and rehabilitating the country's productive capacity. Going forward, growth will need to come increasingly from new investments or new activities. That will require more investment, more intensive acquisition of know-how, and more complex collaboration between local and foreign partners. It will also require a far greater role for private sector investment. While Uganda has benefited enormously from development assistance for almost two decades, foreign aid may decline in the next decade. Indeed, Uganda must accelerate private sector investment and growth if it is to achieve the goals set out in its Poverty Eradication Action Plan. To reduce the poverty rate to 10 percent by 2017, GDP growth will have to exceed 7 percent a year, requiring an investment rate of 30 percent or more of GDP. Attaining these targets will be feasible only with reforms to promote private investment.

Despite extremely difficult security conditions, which deteriorated markedly after 2006, the World Bank Group has commendably established and sustained a large program of support to the country. While World Bank Group strategy has been highly relevant to Afghanistan's situation, beginning in 2006 the strategies can have gone further in adapting ongoing programs to evolving opportunities and needs and in programming activities sufficient to achieve the objectives of the pillars in those strategies. The Bank Group's direct financial assistance has been augmented effectively by analytic and advisory activities and donor coordination through the Afghanistan reconstruction trust fund. Knowledge services have been an important part of Bank Group support and have demonstrated the value of strategic analytical work, even in areas where the Bank Group may opt out of direct project financing. To enhance program effectiveness, the evaluation recommends that the World Bank Group help the government develop a comprehensive, long-term human resources strategy for the civilian sectors; focus on strategic analytical work in sectors that are high priorities for the government; assist in the development of local government institutions and, in the interim...

O presente estudo analisou, a partir de estudo de caso em empresa multinacional de destaque em responsabilidade social com projeto social voltado à inserção via trabalho, as representações sociais formadas pelos participantes sobre trabalho e futuro profissional. Foram entrevistados dois gestores e 26 participantes do projeto, incluindo ex-alunos, hoje empregados na empresa. A partir da compreensão do imaginário desses jovens, pode-se verificar que, para eles, a condição fundamental para a entrada no mercado de trabalho é ter ou não "atitude", condição que hoje já os diferencia de outros jovens de suas comunidades e que favorece o acesso a possibilidades de consumo, bem como amplia os círculos de convívio próximo. O trabalho adquire diferentes sentidos. A empresa é vista tanto como espaço de profissionalismo quanto como "uma família", interessada no futuro deles. Há todo um esforço de mobilização da subjetividade no sentido de aproximar o sonho dos jovens das possibilidades existentes na empresa; En este artículo se analizaron, a partir de un estudio de caso en una empresa multinacional de relieve en responsabilidad social con proyecto social orientado a la inserción a través del trabajo, las representaciones sociales formadas por los participantes sobre empleo y futuro profesional.

Esta pesquisa objetivou investigar se as empresas que se declaram socialmente responsáveis divulgam informações financeiras específicas sobre os recursos gastos em benefício público (investimento social privado) e, também, verificar se há diferença significativa da dimensão desses gastos entre empresas cujos produtos estão associados a externalidades negativas e as organizações participantes do Índice de Sustentabilidade Empresarial (ISE) da Bolsa de Valores de São Paulo (Bovespa). A amostra foi formada por 52 empresas, segregando-se em: 34 organizações participantes do ISE e 18 empresas das indústrias de fumo, bebidas alcoólicas e armas. Os dados foram obtidos dos relatórios anuais dos exercícios de 2005 e 2004, páginas eletrônicas e balanços sociais das respectivas empresas, do banco de dados eletrônicos da Bovespa e, ainda, de questionários enviados aos gestores cujas empresas não explicitavam, publicamente, seus projetos sociais. Os resultados apontaram que nem todas as organizações que declaram realizar investimentos sociais evidenciam tal fato. Na amostra, 11,8% das entidades componentes do ISE e 72,2% das organizações vinculadas a externalidades negativas, não divulgam informações financeiras sobre o valor de gastos sociais...

This paper has investigated the relationship between the degree of internationalization of Brazilian companies and the disclosure on private social investments. This research was motivated by the assumption that the lower was the involvement with the local consumer market, the less the corporate social investment in the community. The sample was formed by 30 Brazilian companies more internationalized. Data on social investments were surveyed in the annual reports, web pages and social balance of the respective companies based on year 2007. The rate of internationalization followed the criteria defined by UNCTAD, which considers three variables of operations in the foreign market: total revenue, value of assets and number of employees. The data were correlated and the results showed a significant negative relationship, suggesting that there was a minor interest of the most internationalized in evidence of possible social actions aimed at local community, compared to less internationalized companies.; Esta pesquisa investigou a relação entre o grau de internacionalização de empresas brasileiras e a evidenciação de informações sobre investimentos sociais privados.

O modelo de interação empresa-sociedade vem sendo rediscutido amplamente sob a ótica do desenvolvimento local sustentável, partindo da premissa de que nenhuma organização da sociedade civil, com fins lucrativos ou não, pode sobreviver em um ambiente instável e desigual. Ao mesmo tempo, as empresas têm assumido cada vez mais o papel de provedoras de bens comuns e têm sido chamadas à atuação social tanto pelas comunidades quanto pelo próprio governo. Diante desse cenário e num contexto em que o exercício da responsabilidade social empresarial deve contribuir para o desenvolvimento sustentável, a questão que se apresenta é como uma grande empresa poderá conciliar os interesses do seu negócio com as necessidades e expectativas do governo e das comunidades no seu entorno. Este trabalho teve por objetivo verificar a contribuição do investimento social privado para o desenvolvimento local por meio da atuação conjunta de uma grande empresa de energia e uma escola profissionalizante de turismo no município de Anchieta-ES. Para consecução do objetivo proposto optou-se pela pesquisa exploratória, de natureza qualitativa, delimitando a amostra originalmente em seis instituições cuja atuação é voltada proeminentemente ao fomento do desenvolvimento local em suas comunidades e chegando até o Movimento de Educação Promocional do Espírito Santo (MEPES) e o projeto da Escola Família Turismo (EFTUR). Foram entrevistados os gestores das instituições selecionadas e profissionais que atuaram e/ou atuam como gestores de projetos sociais.; The business-society interaction model has been largely discussed from a sustainable local development perspective...

Over fifty years ago, Albert Hirschman argued that dissatisfied consumers could either voice complaint or exit when they were dissatisfied with goods or services. Loyal consumers would voice rather than exit. Hirschman argued that making exit easier from publicly provided services, such as health or education, would reduce voice, taking the richest and most articulate away and this would lead to the deterioration of public services. Keith Dowding and Peter John provide the first thorough empirical study of these ideas. Using a modified version of Hirschman’s account, examining private and collective voice, and viewing loyalty as a form of social investment, it is grounded on a dedicated five-year panel study of British citizens. Richard Simmons congratulates the authors for the successful extension of the original model.
