  • The European Union Green Paper (2001) describes the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as:

  • “a concept whereby companies integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations and in their interaction with their stakeholders on a voluntary basis. […] Being socially responsible means not only fulfilling legal expectations, but also going beyond compliance and investing “more” into human capital, the environment and the relations with stakeholders”

  • A socially responsible behaviour:

  • is going beyond the fullfillment of legal expectations;

  • is on a voluntary basis;

  • encourage long term economic sustainability;

  • is connected to a durable development: companies must consider also economic, social and environmental consequences while managing their activities;

  • is not an “additional” feature in business activity, but it’s inherently related to business management.
