Corporate Social Responsability and Corporate Citizenship
The concept of CSR changed drastically in the last years and it started to also be referred with the new terminology of corporate citizenship. As you know, there is no any commonly accepted definition of CSR and often different terminologies are used to refer to the different efforts of the private sector to act responsibly towards the consumers, service users, the community in which they operate and more broadly the society at large. It is not just simply about charity but most importantly about the way a business is run and managed. How can a company be responsive to the challenges and requests coming from the employees, their communities and the governments? How private companies can reconcile the drive for maximizing profit with overall broader ethical issues? How to enforce some sort of benchmarks and award the best practices among corporate sector?
