Offices of Corporate Stewardship

C. S. Herrman


November 23, 2008

Stewardship is defined and considered in the context of offices and cultural typology. Five specific offices inherent to corporate organization and function, as well as four "ideologies" of corporate purpose, are discussed within the stewardship framework. A Goldman Sachs study of corporate governance and environmental and social responsibility is examined with implications for stewardship, practiced and labeled for what it is, and not as charity or philanthropy.
