Broadly speaking corporate social responsibility (CSR) is the self-regulating business policy that companies undertake to be socially accountable to themselves, their stakeholders and the general public. CSR should not be confused or equated with charity; CSR policies are an integral part of a company’s overall business strategy. CSR enables a company to be aware of the impact that they have on various aspects of society, such as economic, social or environmental. By its very definition, CSR allows a company to operate in such a way that there are measurable and sustainable benefits to society while also safeguarding the interests of stakeholders.
CSR can take many forms; it can involve acts of philanthropy, volunteer efforts, education and training/skilling, women empowerment, programs to promote environment sustainability, and many more.
