DEVELOPING AND IMPLEMENTING A CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR) FRAMEWORK
Stakeholder expectations of how companies will carry out their operations have never been higher. In former times, an organization might have focused almost exclusively on delivering a financial return to its business owners. Nowadays communities, governments and other stakeholders clamor for their share of the rewards. They expect to see some social or economic benefit from the extraction, distribution, processing, or other productive functions that the company is involved in.
There are compelling reasons for companies to understand, analyze, and mitigate negative impacts from their operations, and they are expected to go further and create significant positive outcomes for the community.
