Introducing the Book

  • Mia Mahmudur Rahim
Part of the CSR, Sustainability, Ethics & Governance book series (CSEG)


CSR generally refers to social, economic, environmental and stakeholder responsibilities that companies should undertake in their activities. It is a strong component of new business and corporate governance (CG) models for long-term sustainability and for the development of socially responsible corporate culture. It has converged with the new trend of CG and contributed to the shifting of the traditional notion of CG to a vehicle for pursuing corporate management to consider broader public policy goals.
