Billionaire Discusses Corporate Responsibility

Billionaire Discusses Corporate Responsibility

Billionaire Wesley Edens stressed the importance of corporate social responsibility (CSR) at the recently concluded American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM) Business & Civic Leadership Awards & Banquet.


Edens said that it was important for companies to give back, citing that companies that operate with a CSR perspective helped to improve the overall economy and in doing so increased their own long term profits.
The billionaire used the opportunity to announce that his company, Fortress Investment Group, would be partnering with Jamaica Public Service (JPS) to bring Jamaica a cheaper form of energy, by way of liquefied natural gas (LNG).
Eden said that critical to Jamaica’s economic growth is more affordable energy and alternative forms of energy, he enforced his commitment to channeling the way forward in this regard. 
Wesley Edens was the keynote speaker at the awards banquet held at the Jamaica Pegasus hotel on  October 13.
The AMCHAM Business & Civic Leadership Awards & Banquet is an annual event used to highlight the leadership and achievement of businesses, individuals and non-profit organizations that have been driving and achieving the economic and social progress in Jamaica.
