Corporate, Social and Environmental Responsibility
edited by Raymond W Y Kao (Ryerson University & McMaster University, Canada)
This book explains how corporate social responsibility is linked to long-term sustainability of an economy and that the activities of an organization should not be only for its self-interest, but must also be honed for the benefit of common good. A major approach the book advocates is corporate decision-makers in an organization should work towards earning the trust of stakeholders rather than focus on short-term profitability. It also emphasizes the importance of recognizing and rewarding the contribution and commitment by participants of an organization.
