Book Description

This volume, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Practices: Toward Economic, Environmental, and Social Balance explores the management concept whereby companies integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations and in their interactions with their stakeholders. This practice also benefits the company and helps it to reach its strategic goals. This volume takes interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives to exploring a multitude of themes in CSR, including corporate social responsibility in conjunction with employee quality of life, globalization, industry sustainability, environmental accountability, academic spin-off, education, empowerment of women, corporate reputation, expenditures for CSR purposes, and more.

The chapter authors consider the impacts and outcomes along with the emerging challenges of incorporating CSR in an organization’s business strategy. This volume is an important academic journey into some of the most relevant yet under-studied issues of today. It helps to provide an understanding of those issues in a broader perspective of analysis.

This volume will be a valuable resource for faculty and students in business as well as for industry professionals, researchers, and others.
