The one-hour show focused on corporate social responsbility. Host Mike Collins inquired about the business case for operating in a way that focuses on ethical standards, self-regulation, and sustainability, and inquired whether CSR detracts bottom-line role of the business.

Jordan not only set the record straight on the history and value of CSR in general, he and Kinzey both shared specific examples of what individual companies to express their values, support their communities, and operate with integrity.
