Public Sector Roles in Strengthening Corporate Social Responsibility: A Baseline Study

Tom Fox, Halina Ward, Bruce Howard

Book/Report, 35 pages

This report categorizes and discusses the range of roles that public sector agencies have played in providing an “enabling environment” for corporate social responsibility (CSR). The starting point is a broad definition of CSR that goes well beyond a more limited understanding of CSR as being about business activities that go “beyond compliance”. A broader definition that considers the overall potential commitment of business to sustainable development is better suited to understanding public sector roles in CSR.
