Integrating Corporate Social Responsibility into Development Agency Role



Whenever a firm organizes and strategizes its organizational routines, it triggers somehow the elements of the triple bottom line. This Chapter and Chap.  6 analyze the core businesses of BDA as a governmental development agency and municipal services provider, and the embeddedness of CSR perspectives in the two statutory functions. This Chapter analyzes the role of BDA as a governmental development agency, which entails it to embark on residential, industrial, and commercial development activities. Besides, BDA also undertakes business ventures in collaboration with private firms through incorporating companies; an additional authority not enjoyed by other local authorities. The organization’s major contributions, with CSR added on, in the development of public infrastructures, industrial estates, housing estates, and commercial centers over the past 35 years are presented.
