Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the subject of widespread debate, which tends to centre on its integrity. Are the initiatives ‘genuine’, or are they motivated by a firm’s desire to enhance its reputation?

Does it matter what the motivation is, as long as some improvements are made? What exactly is CSR?

Is it donating the company’s money and time to charity in a sort of conspicuous altruism, or is it about doing the basic things well?

What are the areas of concern: the environment, product safety, etc.?

Are firms responsible for their supply chain? And how can the message best be communicated to a cynical world?

This book addresses questions in two ways.

Part I comprises eight chapters covering the theory and practice of CSR. It presents the definitions and origins of CSR, the main formal and informal drivers of the practice and a comprehensive taxonomy of the areas of concern to a modern firm, including the supply chain.

Part II then relates the experiences of eight Irish organisations, from different sectors, in implementing a CSR strategy.
