The UK’s Guardian offers an interesting case study of successful collaboration in corporate philanthropy. The trouble they have sought to assuage is perhaps a surprising one:

As part of its corporate responsibility remit, [Bosch and Siemens Home Appliances Group (BSH)] has been working on the development of a smoke hood to help prevent the 1.5m deaths, predominantly in developing countries, caused by cooking over open stoves. [Emphasis added.] “It’s a shocking fact that more people die from cooking on open fires than from malaria every year,” says Samual Shiroff, business development director for corporate responsibility at BSH.

We agree, that is shocking.
