Throughout the last couple of years, interest in “corporate social responsibility” is steadily climbing.
Great. More interest could result in more awareness, which in turn could result in pressure. That pressure could eventually translate into consumers’ altering their behavior, buying from different vendors, with greater corporate social responsibility.
Unfortunately, there are quite a few horror stories regarding the lack of corporate social responsibility. Ranging from how raw materials are sourced, to the way workers are treated, to false emission claims. The list goes on. Those are the stories that surfaced. Suffice to say that there is a multitude of similar reports that haven’t (yet) surfaced. Once you notice, it’s grueling to look the other way.
Some businesses have more potential than others to contribute to corporate social responsibility. Even if it’s just a little bit, maximize yours today.
