Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
Doing good is good business. In the 20th century, only a dozen Fortune 500 companies even issued a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report. Now, the majority do, and more than 7,000 businesses around the world have signed the UN Global Compact pledging to show good global citizenship. According to Landor Associates, 77% of consumers say it is important for companies to be socially responsible. In addition, many companies are following the lead of strategy experts, such as Michael Porter, and embedding CSR into their organizational strategy and operations – calling it strategic CSR.
