SOCIAL RESPONSABILITY
MORE THAN GOOD INTENTIONS

Until recently, a very narrow view existed of corporate social responsibility or CSR. It was perceived as a practice that focused on two spheres of activity: environmental protection and renewable energy development, and primarily philanthropic social support. In 2000, the UN signed the Global Compact, creating a watershed by determining that social responsibility should be considered as an obligation not only for governments and transnational firms, but also for organizations.
