Trump supporter friend: "Facebook, Google, Apple, Twitter all side with a specific party and decide what people should not hear. People have power of discernment, let them hear everything and decide for themselves."

When will Twitter's largest institutional investors step up to hold $TWTR accountable? Trump's Tweets are false and dangerous. "Differently" and "disputed" are wholly insufficient. Profits are not the only driver.

Hello @delbius. You're head of @TwitterSafety. Tweet by @LLinWood is unsubstantiated and inflames violent extremists. Lin Wood is NOT a government nor elected official. So his Tweets are not protect by Twitter @Policy. Why are you allowing Lin Wood to incite violence? $TWTR #ESG Image
QAnon leader Ron Watkins, who Trump retweeted this week, still Tweeting threats of violence, despite @Twitter's announcement in July to ban QAnon accounts. @TwitterSafety $TWTR #ESG #CSR Image
What does QAnon hashtag #CrossTheRubicon mean?

In 49 BC, Caesar "made the cold-blooded decision to lead his army across the Rubicon river into Italy. This plunged the Roman world into civil war."

Twitter must not allow QAnon to promote war.

Hi @hannahfrankau You work in public policy at @YouTube and @Google. Since this is a matter of urgent global concern, would you please address: Why did YouTube remove two of Kelly Loeffler’s ads? Was she spreading #misinformation? Georgia voters deserve to know.
YouTube must say why it removed two of Kelly Loeffler's ads. YouTube parent company @Google must do the right thing. $GOOGL #ESG

#CSR #HelpingNeedy

Since the Gregorian new year is coming up & we will start with our resolutions, I thought of sharing some anecdotes about CSR & individual's choices about money & contributing to society in general.

This thread is a reflection of thoughts ...

It intends to share anecdotes. But any point of time, I don't intend to preach or judge or coax anyone into any specific action.

This is Food-For-Thought and is a mere reflection of an individual's relationship with Society

CSR is the most common term used in Corporate Companies for spending a portion of their profits for the greater common good. This is mandatory as per Law (to best of my knowledge!)

Usually companies use set-pieces with known Org for ensuring CSR funds are spent..their choice

Hi @McGrathFdn we support the aims and the work of your charity. We have lost loved ones to breast cancer and see the value of your important work.
#breastcancer #charity
We are therefore troubled to see #HoneyBirdette misusing your brand once again. Just like 2019, the shopping centre sex shop, has plastered your logo on its sexual objectification of women like a stamp of approval. #csr #ethics #adstandards @AANA_says… ImageImage
Last year, commenting on an identical ad campaign you said:

Media Release: New advertising code of ethics unlikely to rein in repeat corporate offenders #mediarelease #advertising #aana #csr #ethics #adstandards… Image
The Australian Association of National Advertisers (AANA) this week released its updated Code of Ethics following a review. While we welcome some new elements in the Code, we have reservations about its overall effectiveness.
The updated Code – taking effect Feb 2021 - includes restrictions on undue focus on male or female anatomy, unless relevant to the product being advertised, use of sexualised imagery or graphic violence where children are likely to view it, & avoiding harmful gender stereotypes.

1. During his #IndependenceDay2020 speech, PM @narendramodi again highlighted the necessity of #AtmaNirbharBharat. We went one step ahead asking us to move from #MakeInIndia to #MakeForWorld.

I wonder, why can't the same apply for NGO sector?
2. Do we have dearth of our homegrown NGOs that we need international NGOs to occupy our space in India, who primarily exist here to take benefits of the funding now available in India, including the #CSR funding?
3. We have a rich history of the CSOs, playing important role before the independence and afterwards. That has been undermined due to the heavy presence of international NGOs through their country offices.

Thank you @jacknpeat for raising awareness of the positive example set by @JamesTCobbler

Such a fantastic and consistent example of Corporate Social Responsibility:…
This is why I dedicated my book ‘How to get a GREAT JOB when you have a CRIMINAL RECORD’ to James Timpson OBE & why The Rt. Hon. Lord Wilson, Justice of the Supreme Court of United Kingdom, confirmed in the preface that he would always patronise Timpson’s.…
I hope post #covid19 more employers begin to understand that there is so much more to life and business than mere economic indicators.

CM #UddhavThackeray addresses state: We are all waiting for this war to get over. Like I had said earlier, if we could have seen our enemy, we could have won this war a long time ago.

#COVID19 #COVID #CoronaInMaharashtra #Coronavirus #CoronavirusLockdown #CoronavirusOutbreak
CM #UddhavThackeray: But this enemy is invisible. And another factor is that this enemy is using our own people to spread its infection. Determination, strength, patience all of these will stand us in good stead.

#COVID19 #COVID #CoronaInMaharashtra #CoronavirusLockdown
CM Uddhav Thackeray: Tomorrow we will complete 6 weeks since we have been in a #lockdown. Many are constantly looking at numbers and raising questions so I want to place some numbers in front of you.

In the backdrop of #Covid_19 #pandemic it is difficult for the states to maintain the economic balance. Here are a few suggestions that could be considered by the Central Government.
1. RBI has implemented new deferment policy regarding the loan repayment in the background of #Covid_19 #lockdown. This should be made applicable to State Debt as well. The central government should defer payment of instalments to RBI on State Debt at least for six months.
2. Most of the Natioalised Banks have flushed off more than 10 Lakh Crore of funds to corporates in the last five years. In the situation of Covid-19 Pandemic these Nationalised Banks should extend interest free advances to the State Government.

Today’s #coronavirus brainstorming:

#CSR as “Customer Social Responsibility”

Some preliminary thoughts

*** THREAD ***
Our world has become a single interconnected system

There is nothing “outside” it anymore

Every step we take affects the rest of the system
CSR typically means “corporate social responsibility”

> the idea that businesses have responsibility not just toward their investors but also toward every other part of the interconnected system in which they're embedded

employees, suppliers, customers, the natural environment

#CSR के माध्यम से उद्योग जगत का गंगा कायाकल्प में भागीदार बनना एक सुखी अनुभव है। मैं Indorama Charitable Trust और अन्य उद्योग जगत को इस आंदोलन में शामिल होने के लिए धन्यवाद देता हूं। अगर सभी भारतीय एक साथ कुछ करने की ठान लें तो कुछ भी असंभव नहीं है।

1/n #ACA Premiums and landscape files are out so here are the first thoughts:

Headline: Gross Premiums down 4% YoY

@dylanlscott @leonardkl @sangerkatz @sarahkliff @bobjherman @caitlinnowens @rachanadixit
2/N Lots of things are happening.

The biggest one is that 2018 was so massively overpriced that 2020 (these rates) are still reflecting that problem. 2 different pricing scenarios get us to the same point with different stories
3/N 2018 was a huge policy shock for pricing with massive uncertainty on #CSR leading to insurers either running from the market entirely, retrenching or jacking up rates

As soon as CSR Terminated (October 2017), #Silverloading differentially increased silver premiums by a lot

My favorite part abt this? @CoreCivic & @GEOGroup’s statements; they’re clearly struggling 2 realize that all the facts & info that formed the basis 4 this decision were taken directly from the cos’ own SEC filings, depositions, & internal emails lawyers obtained thru discovery
Also, y’all r still using basically the same statements u provided n response 2 CalSTRS’ divestment. At least put a little effort in? I mean, my god, if I can sit thru ur CEOs droning on & on n quarterly shareholder 📞 at least have the decency 2 update ur sad excuse 4 a comeback

Make no mistake. This is a tax. A terrible one at that. Because it's disguised. #CSR
So after companies have paid tax on their taxable income, they have to pay a tax on the profit too. #CSR

No small amount. 2% every year.
So far #CSR was a "comply or explain" provision. Probably the first one in Indian company law.

That means - the company must comply with the provision or explain to shareholders why they haven't complied.

Common in corporate governance provisions in the west.

This is about to be a thread to educate a CEO about Border Patrol and why people want to #CloseTheCamps and why workers are saying #WeWontBeComplicit.
I'm GRATEFUL to the @ogilvy employees who, like the #WayfairWalkout, don't want to be part of what's happening at the border. The hashtag #dontlookaway is aimed at all of us. #NoTechForICE could also be #NoPRforTheCamps
After 3 weeks of press coverage detailing how @ogilvy recruits for the border patrol agency running the camps, @jseifert79, the CEO, told workers raising concerns that "I don’t have enough information to indict this [organization]."…
