Recommended search tips and rssources

The United Nations Industrial Development Organisation defines CSR as follows

Corporate Social Responsibility 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.

As you can see from this definition, CSR is a wide ranging and multi disciplinary concept.
