Corporate Social Responsibility

...WHAT IS CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY OR CSR? For long it was argued that the role of businesses was purely economical and that economics was the parameter on the basis of which their success or failure was to be determined. Corporations, since eons, have been regarded as the providers of jobs, products and services and it was believed that they are only financially responsible and profit making is their only motive. But recent times have seen a departure from that tradition and now CSR is being taken up in a broader societal context, mainly due to globalisation and the change in the ecological balance. They stakeholders i.e. the employees, community, suppliers and shareholders are redefining the role of the corporations. As a result of this particular kind of shift, many organisations have started endorsing the idea of businesses leaving the purely economic front and blending in some societal dimension as well. THE HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE OF CSR: CSR is not a new concept. It has been there since always though not necessarily by this name. Various ancient scriptures mention that businesses should be run ethically and more importantly, they should benefit the deprived section of the society. It has always been said that those who are privileged must lend a helping hand to those who aren’t. Chanakya, the teacher and guardian of Chandragupta Maurya, in his book ‘Arthashastra’ emphasised that ethical means be used while operating businesses. It is often argued that the......

In the 1990s, CSR continues to serve as a core construct but yields to or is transformed into alternative thematic frameworks.’ (Carroll, 1999) This essay will discuss about corporate social responsibility (CSR), which is one of the key factors face by corporations today, where it become relatively important to employees and stakeholders.

...Qn 1 1.     The Natural Environment One of the more common ways marketers demonstrate social responsibility is through programs designed to protect and preserve the natural environment. a)    Many companies are making contributions to environmental protection organizations, sponsoring and participating in clean-up events, promoting recycling, retooling manufacturing processes to minimize waste and pollution, and generally reevaluating the effects of their products on the natural environment. b)    Green marketing refers to the specific development, pricing, promotion, and distribution of products that do not harm the natural environment. c)    Although demand for economic, legal, and ethical solutions to environmental problems is widespread, the environmental movement in marketing includes many different groups, whose values and goals often conflict. d)    Some environmentalists and marketers believe that companies should work to protect and preserve the natural environment by implementing the following goals: (1)   Eliminate the concept of waste (2)   Reinvent the concept of a product (3)   Make prices reflect products’ true cost (4)   Make environmentalism profitable 2.     Consumerism a)    Consumerism refers to the efforts of independent individuals, groups, and organizations working to protect the rights of consumers. b)    A number of interest groups and individuals have taken action against companies they consider irresponsible by lobbying government officials and......

Corporate Social Responsibility

...Corporate social responsibility statements are effective ways of ensuring multi-national companies act ethically.   Discuss For the past few years there has been lots of discussion about Corporate Social Responsibility. Most of the multinational companies issue every year a report on their practices. They try to get involved into communities, fight the poverty in the third world countries and donate millions of ponds every year to charities to as they say “build the better future”. But are their corporate social responsibility statements effective ways of ensuring that multinational entities act ethically? From my point of viewview, CSR statements do not ensure that practices of companies obey the rules of business ethics and I am going to present a few arguments for. Corporate Social Responsibility is fairly recent termterm and maybe that is why there is no consistent definition for it. Most multinational companies use different terms in their reports, for example Shell defines it as ‘sustainable development’, Ford uses the phrase ‘connecting with society’, Diageo prefers the termterm ‘corporate citizenship’. All these expressions, although they have different meanings, are related to Corporate Social Responsibility but because of the proliferation of approaches, every company can put emphasis on something different, creating therefore complexity and confusion. What is more, the socially responsible company not only complies with minimum requirements of the law, but......

The Ambiguity of Corporate Social Responsibility

...make profit without any consideration or regards to anything else in the world as said by the economist Milton Friedman in his essay “deriding the idea that a business had any responsibility other than to maximise its profits within legally and ethically acceptable margins, arguing that ‘a corporate executive is an employee of the owners of the business. A few new theories were introduced in the famous essay written by Milton Friedman. These theories suggested that the only reason a business exists is to make profit and this is done through the actions of all the executives of any business. The only reason an executive is employed is to take decisions that will have a direct affect on the profitability of a business and thus in effect it will be the consequent to the livelihoods of the employees of any corporation. It is exactly for these beliefs that the idea of a socially responsible corporation seems like a far-fetched one in the era when this philosophy was hailed as the cornerstone of the ideology required for any business operation, where the only reason a business existed was to make money and that’s all. The whole argument involves around the case of CSR, how exactly to describe the definition is where the ambiguity starts, or does it? Within the economic industry the main responsibility of any corporation has been to make money and to increase the business value for the shareholders (as mentioned above). But with time this view is nothing but the misty......

Corporate Social Responsibility

...Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) also being known as corporate conscience is a continuing commitment by a business to the society. A business behaves ethically and contributes to the economic development as well as improves the standard of living of the employees and their families in the local community and society. Corporate Social Responsibility also can be defined as areas of concern and initiatives to improve the relations of people and environment (Simply, 2008). Example of company that had put a lot of effort in CSR activities are The Body Shop, Starbucks, Walt Disney and so on. CSR activities can be categorized into a few types of groups such as environment, philanthropy and ethical labor practices. Each type of the group focuses on different matter. However, no matter what type of CSR activity is being launched, all these companies had the same ultimate goal which is to bring the benefits to the society. In this 21st century, the society is very concerned about the condition of the earth because it is where we live. We can often hear from people about global warming, melting ice berg in the North and South Pole, the broken hole at the atmosphere and earth hour which often follow by the slogans such as “Love Your Mother Earth”, “Say No to Pollution”, “Be Kind to Your Mother Earth” etc. All these propagandas show that people today care a lot about the environment and these make up the primary concern of corporate social responsibility in every business which is......
