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