What is Corporate Social Responsibility?

The Harvard Kennedy School's Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative defines CSR as "not only what companies do with their profits, but also how they make them. It goes beyond philanthropy and compliance and addresses how companies manage their economic, social, and environmental impacts, as well as their relationships in all key spheres of influence: the workplace, the marketplace, the supply chain, the community, and the public policy realm."

 

Before You Start Your Research

Researching corporate social responsibility can be a challenge. While there might be specific reports or resources that focus solely on the beneficence of a given corporation, often you will need to search for articles in one of the Rutgers University Libraries article indexes or databases and extract out specific information that will allow you to compile a more complete picture of a company's actions. Sometimes, for a particularly noteworthy company, there may be a book that takes a comprehensive look at that company's actions.

To best utilize this guide, navigate through a variety of resources that are grouped by type (article, book, etc.) using the tabs at the top of the page. If you have any trouble using any of these resources or finding exactly what you need, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. My contact information is on the right of this page.
