What is Corporate Social Responsibility ‪(CSR)‬?‎

CSR as defined by UNIDO is:

A management concept whereby companies integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations and interactions with their stakeholders.‎ CSR is generally understood as being the way through which a company achieves a balance of economic, environmental and social imperatives (“Triple-Bottom-Line- Approach”), while at the same time addressing the expectations of shareholders and stakeholders.‎

Responsible Companies in the age of globalization

How a company perceives its societal responsibility depends on various factors such as the markets in which it operates, its business line and its size.‎

In recent years CSR has become a fundamental business practice and has gained much attention from the management of large international companies.‎ They understand that a strong CSR program is an essential element in achieving good business practices and effective leadership.‎ Companies have explored that their impact on the economic, social and environmental sector directly affects their relationships with investors, employees and customers.‎

De La Rue, for instance, is a UK-based commercial banknote printer and security paper maker with over 200 years of history.‎ They understand CSR well and are reporting their performance since 2011.‎ You can visit their website for dditional information at: http://www.delarue.com/corporate-responsibility.aspx
