CSR is defined as a business outlook that acknowledges responsibilities to stakeholders beyond shareholders, including suppliers, customers, and employees as well as local and international communities in which it operates and the natural environment. The CSR movement represents a growing awareness that the actions organizations take have unintended consequences outside the business, and the business has a responsibility to address them.
