5 Key Elements of CSR Corporations have responsibilities beyond the production of  goods and services. These responsibilities involve helping to solve social problems. Corporations have a broader constituency than just  stockholders. Corporations have impacts beyond simple marketplace  transactions. Corporations serve a wider range of human values than just  economic values. Principles of:  “legitimacy, public responsibility,  managerial discretion”  (Wood, text page 135)

Case for Involvement Business must satisfy society’s needs. CSR prevents public criticism and government regulation. Business and society are interdependent. CSR is good for the bottom line. Investors and consumers support CSR. Addressing social problems can become financial opportunities  (e.g., pollution abatement). Business should take long-term CSR approach. Social actions improve public image and goodwill. Business can solve problems as well as government. Proactive approach is better than reactive. Businesspeople are also concerned citizens.
