Corporate social responsibility is a management concept that emerged in the latter half of the 20th century. It involves building relationships with partners to improve the image and credibility of the company, where companies integrate social and environmental concerns into their business.
CSR is beneficial for organisations as it builds public trust, makes sense of identity with the business they work for, helps team member retention and creates a productive and positive influence in the workplace.
The basic principles of CSR are sustainability, accountability and transparency.
Stakeholders are all individuals, communities, institutions, or organisations that can influence the business or can be influenced by it.
