What is Social Responsibility?

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

So you’re probably wondering what is Social Responsibility?

Social responsibility is defined as a duty every individual or organization has to perform so as to maintain a balance between the economy and the ecosystem.

Corporate social responsibility, also known as CSR, is a form of corporate self-regulation that is integrated into a company’s business model. The goal of corporate social responsibility is to embrace responsibility for the company’s actions and encourage a positive impact through its activities on the environment, consumers, employees, communities, and general public.

CSR in may cases works to aid an organization’s mission as well as guide what the company stands for and will uphold to its consumers. CSR helps provide services for not only the community but for the company in itself. When a company becomes accountable in society it also gains a reputation that’s hard to put down.

Many companies and business are socially responsibly but often times we do not notice what they are doing aside from making money. Over the next few blog post I will talk about a few commonly known businesses/companies that are socially responsible, and how they do their part in society.
