Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) – An Introduction

CSR refers to those actions whereby business seeks to contribute to sustainable economic development. In its commitment to sustainability, a business recognizes that, in addition to serving its shareholders’ interests in the pursuit of economic value, it must also understand the legitimate concerns of other stakeholders such as employees and the wider community.

 

Changing attitudes on the part of consumers and investors mean that CSR is no longer seen as an expensive luxury, but can in fact result in net savings for the business. This course covers the fundamentals of corporate social responsibility, with particular focus on the banking industry.
