What is Corporate Social Responsibility?


The International Organization for Standardization defines Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as part of its work on the new Guidance Standard on Social Responsibility, ISO 26000. It says:

“Social responsibility is the responsibility of an organisation for the impacts of its decisions and activities on society and the environment, through transparent and ethical behaviour that:

  • contributes to sustainable development, including the health and the welfare of society;
  • takes into account the expectations of stakeholders;
  • is in compliance with applicable law and consistent with international norms of behaviour; and
  • is integrated throughout the organization and practiced in its relationships.”

CSR initiatives and policies are built on four pillars: Environment, Community, Workplace and Market Place.
