Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is an evolving management practice that brings things like sustainability, accountability and philanthropic efforts in to a company’s business model. Raising awareness, building trust, taking responsibility, and encouraging change are all central to CSR. Although usually seen in big companies, the recent booming of younger generations combined with their commitment to social awareness has made CSR a priority for businesses of all sizes.
