CSR and Governments

One growing issue is that of government involvement in CSR. Actually one could argue, what do governments actually care about CSR, as the name already suggests, Corporate Social Responsibility is about Companies and their role in society, their approach to responsibility and their stakeholders.

Financial Crisis and CSR

The most asked question to me in the last few days was if the current financial crisis has a negative impact on CSR, if it is the end of CSR or if CSR will die like so many other fashion terms after the first little wind blow. Now my answer could sound bias, as I work in the field of CSR and consult companies, teach at Universities and hold lectures all over the world, but my statement is based on business experiance and scientific proof.
