New Research Surfaces the Many Benefits of Corporations Donating Inventory
Last week, Indiana University’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs released research on the Business Case for Product Giving. This research is the first-of-its-kind analyzing donation versus liquidation and disposal and clearly demonstrates that companies can improve their bottom lines while doing social good. The report provides new information to help corporations make good inventory management decisions year-round, and is especially timely for those retailers with January 31 fiscal year-ends. Highlights of the findings follow:
• Product philanthropy has substantial benefits due to the significant financial, environmental and social ROI.
