responsibilities in its operations so as to address share holder and other stakeholder expectations
The 5 key elements of CSR

2) These responsibilities involve helping to solve important social problems expecially they have
helped create
3) Corporates have a broader constituency than share holders
4) Corporates have impact that go beyond simple market place transactions
5) \corporates serve a wider range of human values than can be captured by a sole focus on
economic values
Dahlsurd dimensions environmental, social , economical, stakeholder, voluntairness
Principles of CSR
