Sometimes known as sustainability, sustainable development or corporate responsibility, corporate social responsibility (CSR) is usually defined as a company’s obligation to all of its stakeholders across all of its activities with the aim of achieving sustainable development in the economic, social and environmental dimensions.

Stakeholders can include employees, customers, suppliers, community organisations, the environment, subsidiaries and affiliates, local neighbourhoods, the planet, investors and shareholders.
