Concepts and definitions of CSR and corporate sustainability: Between agency and communion [Book Review]
Journal of Business Ethics 44 (2-3):95-105 (2003)
AbstractThis paper provides an overview of the contemporary debate on the concepts and definitions of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Corporate Sustainability (CS). The conclusions, based on historical perspectives, philosophical analyses, impact of changing contexts and situations and practical considerations, show that "one solution fits all"-definition for CS(R) should be abandoned, accepting various and more specific definitions matching the development, awareness and ambition levels of organizations.
