Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a form of corporate self-regulation, where CSR policy and practice help to ensure business practices meet socially responsible ethical standards and encourage a positive impact on the environment, consumers, employees, communities, stakeholders and all other members of the public sphere. While corporate social responsibility is not a new phenomenon, this approach to “corporate conscience” or “sustainable responsible business” has increased in popularity and usage across the world in recent years. Furthermore, as we live in an increasingly hyper-competitive and interconnected globalized world, corporate social responsibility concepts and practices are increasingly being taught in top universities and being utilized more and more to drive responsible business practices and positive social change around the globe.

This edited collection provides a comprehensive introduction to corporate social responsibility and explores the impacts for the modern global economic landscape, presenting a wide range of cross-disciplinary research in an organized, clear, and accessible manner. It will be informative to social science and management academics and instructors, while also instructing organizational managers, leaders, and human resource development professionals of all types seeking to understand proven practices and methods in corporate social responsibility to promote ongoing organizational and societal success.
