Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility has been a key issue. CSR is the greatest ethical challenge in present context. On the one hand transparency, corrupt practices, ethical use of natural resources, preventing pollution and carbon foot print, ethical decision making in business processes are the key issues to focus; on the other hand, profit maximizing motive of the corporations and its integration with the CSR go hand on hand. Business shareholders may see the CSR expenditures as a brand building activity which causes conflicts of interests.
Maximizing the positive societal outcome of the business activities is the key CSR driver in the context of business in a developing county. Concerns of the investors, consumers and other key stakeholders are satisfied with respect to social image of the corporation and their brand image among customers. CSR is seen as a big influence factor on these. It has been a question of debate whether to have strict compliance or make CSR a voluntary practice for corporations in developing countries. National Governments role is crucial in such decisions. However, it has been observed that the companies which never thought about contributing to society have started their participation after making CSR mandatory under the law.
The prime objective of business has been to make profits by exploiting the natural and human resources. Such practices have caused crisis that we have been facing presently and are endangered to our future generations. Corporate Social Responsibility is an important function for businesses to establish themselves as well-wishers in the social development and in preventing/reducing natural and environmental crisis. CSR mechanism is a beginning towards integrating the responsible business behaviours towards society, environment and planet while making profits.
