Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the belief that companies have a responsibility to more than just their shareholders. Through CSR activities, organizations look beyond narrow shareholder value maximization in search of purpose and outcomes for all stakeholders (consumers, employees, communities, and the environment). In other words, CSR is concerend with the need to connect company prosperity with broader community welfare, realizing the interdependence of business and society and that they reinforce each other in synergetic ways.
