Corporate Social Responsibility is a commitment to improve community well-being through discretionary business practices and contributions of corporate resources.
“Business has a responsibility beyond its basic responsibility to its shareholders; a responsibility to a broader constituency that includes its key stakeholders: customers, employee, NGOs, government - the people of the communities in which it operates.” - Courtney Pratt, Former CEO Toronto Hydro.
"In terms of power and influence you can forget about the church, forget politics. There is no more powerful institution in society than business... The business of business should not be about money, it should be about responsibility. It should be about public good, not private greed." - Anita Roddick, Business as Usual
