ABSTRACT We describe a variety of perspectives on corporate social responsibility (CSR), which we use to develop a framework for consideration of the strategic implications of CSR. Based on this framework, we propose an agenda for additional theoretical and empirical research on CSR. We then review the papers in this special issue and relate them to the proposed agenda.

    ABSTRACT: This paper aims to define the concept and to provide a comparative analysis of Corporate Social Responsibility, based on case study of reporting initiatives such as: Global Reporting Initiative, Resource Based View Initiative and Global Environmental Management Initiative. This comparative analysis will highlight the similarities and differences of reporting elements used in Corporate Social Responsibility reporting from the initiatives point of view. The proposed model of Balanced Scorecard provides a new structure of Corporate Social Responsibility indicators. This was done according to each perspective in order to analyze which reporting initiative is the most relevant. Also there are presented future directions for implementing the proposed model.

    ABSTRACT: This policy-capturing study, conducted in China, investigated the cognitive basis of managerial decisions to make a corporate charitable donation, a global issue in the context of corporate social responsibility (CSR) research and practice. Participants (N = 376) responded to a series of scenarios manipulating pressure from the five stakeholders (government, customers, competitors, employees, and shareholders) most commonly addressed by CSR research. The independent variables examined included organizational factors (industry, ownership, previous company donation, firm size, firm age, and perceived CEO attitudes toward charity) and the participants’ personal values. Results indicate a large positive effect of shareholder and governmental pressure on the decision with lesser positive effects from customers and competitors. Surprisingly, employee pressure had a negative effect on the decision to make a charitable donation. Further, personal values and perceived CEO attitudes toward charity were significantly related to the decisions participants made. In line with our theorizing, the findings indicate that a combination of personal, organizational, and institutional factors was salient in the minds of decision makers.
