It is the reason for having incorporated. A typical element of CP is to maximize long-term profits for the shareholders of the firm (shareholder value perspective).
But other constituents and goals can also be part of the CP (stakeholder value perspective).
A CP is often articulated in the corporate mission and mission statement.
