Concluding This Book

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


The basis of corporate responsibility has reached a new level with the transition from the question of why corporations must be socially responsible to that of how they can become socially responsible. At this level, issues of CSR are being integrated into the core policy objectives of global companies which are also moving beyond their individual business initiatives. Strong and developing economies have begun incorporating CSR principles within their socio-economic strategies and are also integrating these principles into the very fabric of their national economies.
