Abstract

Perhaps more than ever before the responsibilities and obligations of commercial enterprises in the Western world are being questioned. This has culminated in the emergence of a perspective that is captured by the term corporate social responsibility (CSR) or corporate citizenship (Carroll, 1999). Those who subscribe to this perspective argue that corporate social responsibilities extend beyond the profit motives of shareholders and into the broader goals of society (Lazer, 1996).
