"Companies in the lead tend to have well-articulated strategies, good management structure and process in place, and more dedicated resources to incubate a strong culture of community involvement. They tend to effectively leverage their corporate assets to manage the CSR portfolio with a balanced score card," said C. Y. Yeung, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility, Intel China Ltd. and Chair of the AmCham Shanghai Business Council for Sustainability and Responsibility (BCSR). Yeung served as a member of the judging panel for the 2013 AmCham Shanghai CSR Awards.
