SREs in Selected Industrialised Countries

  • Michael Hopkins


So far, I have concentrated on the USA and UK. I have argued that corporate social responsibility is increasing for a variety of reasons, not least because it makes economic sense for large TNCs in these countries to act socially responsibly. But is this just an English-speaking phenomenon? In the future, do transnational companies, located in all industrialised countries, need to be more socially responsible than before? Will not being socially responsible mean that it will be just that much harder to compete in the global market place? These questions, and how they are being tackled in some of the largest industrialised countries, are what I look at here.
