Corporate Social Responsibility
One may define Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as a voluntary corporate conduct aimed at assessing and taking responsibility for the company's impacts on the environment and on social welfare. As such, the conduct goes beyond legal requirements, trading the short-term financial benefit of irresponsible practices for a positive social and environmental change in the future.
Whenever business leaders talk about sustainability or private social investments, they are talking about aspects of CSR. Whenever companies use their power in the community and in the national economy to build a better future for everyone, they are practicing CSR. However, if they feign interest in corporate responsibility or adopt fake conducts, they are engaged in "greenwashing".
