Corporate Social responsibility is when a business monitors and ensures its active compliance with the spirit of the law and ethical standards. It is a process with the aim to embrace responsibility for the company 's actions and encourage a positive impact through its activities on the environment, consumers, employees, communities, stakeholders and all other members of the public sphere.
