INTRODUCTION Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is known by many names which are corporate responsibility, corporate accountability, corporate ethics, corporate citizenship, responsible entrepreneurship, and “triple bottom line,” to name Just a few. Now as CSR become increasingly synonymous with modern businesses, there is a trend of stating it as “responsible competitiveness” or “corporate sustainability. CSR as of today is an evolving concept that currently doesn’t have any universally accepted definition. Generally, CSR is thought to be the way by which firms integrate social, environmental and economic concerns into their values, ethics ,culture, ecision making, strategy and operations in a transparent and accountable manner and thereby establish better practices and policies in the firm, create wealth for the stakeholders and improve society. The World Business Council for Sustainable Development has described CSR as the business contribution to sustainable economic development.
Having a base of compliance with legislation and regulations, CSR typically includes “beyond law’ commitments and activities pertaining to: ??? Corporate governance and ethics; ??? Health and safety; ??? Environmental stewardship; ??? Human rights (including core labor rights); ?? Sustainable development; ??? Conditions of work (including safety and health, hours of work, wages); ??? Industrial relations; A very important point to remember that there are two separate drivers for CSR.
One relates to public policy as the impacts and effects of the business sector are so huge, and its potential results can be positive or negative, so it is obvious that governments and wider society take a close look at what business does. We conclude that expectations from businesses are rising; governments are looking for ways to increase the positive contribution of business. The second driver is the driver of Duslness wnere, CSR can De vlewea as Dotn costs (e. g. , 0T Introauclng new approaches) or benefits (e. g. , of improving brand value, or introducing products that meet sustainability demands).
The remainder of this guide addresses the second of these drivers. 4 page 2. STUDY OF CSR ACTIVITIES OF COMPANIES 2. 1.
