Corporate initiative to assess and take responsibility for the company’s effects on the environment and impact on social welfare. The term generally applies to company efforts that go beyond what may be required by regulators or environmental protection groups.
Corporate social responsibility may also be referred to as “corporate citizenship” and can involve incurring short-term costs that do not provide an immediate financial benefit to the company, but instead promote positive social and environmental change.
Whether it’s called corporate citizenship or a sustainable responsible business model, many are finding ways to impact social change through their workplace. Join us on April 16th at 6pm in the Business Building Lounge for a conversation about CSR. All TCNJ students are welcome. Pizza & soda will be served at 5:45.
