This chapter charts the rise and implications of corporate interest/ engagement in responsibility. After a brief introduction the theoretical framework underlying Sustainable Development is introduced in its historical perspective. This is followed by a discussion about what Sustainable Development really means to business, paying particular attention to the most popular models of implementation. Subsequently, three primary drivers of responsible behaviour are introduced and examined. Section 2.4 looks at the ways in which companies are demonstrating their responsibility performance and reviews some of the emerging guidelines.
