Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

 

Assignment 2: Discussion—Planet, People, Profit—Global Perspective

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has gained in importance over the last decade. Companies are not only evaluated based on their financials, but also based on their activities related to the society in which they operate and the consequences of their operations on the environment.

Using the University online library resources, select an MNC that was recently recognized for its high CSR standards and practices, and an MNC recently involved in a social, environmental, or ethical dispute.

Next, do the following:

  • Describe the practices of the MNC recognized for high CSR standards.
  • Contrast its practices with those of the company that was identified as having poor CSR practices.
  • Evaluate practices and consequences of both companies as related to CSR.

Be sure to cite your sources.

Write your initial response in a minimum of 300 words. Apply APA standards to the citation of sources.
