Corporate Social Responsibility
The links on this page focus on international applications of
corporate social responsibility (CSR). While the overall list
is not exhaustive, it encompasses the wide variety of subtopics
that come under the CSR heading. The list is loosely organized
with the sites that most closely focus on CSR earliest in the
list. The short description that follows each link is intended
to provide some insight into the international CSR relevance.
In many instances, the link is not exclusively devoted to that
area. A second, shorter list of company-specific sites follows.
These were chosen because they contain an element of international
CSR within them.
These links were developed by John L. Waltman and Meera Patel
with support from the Ernest
and Jeanne Merlanti Ethics Initiative at Eastern
Michigan University's College
of Business. Other sites sponsored by this initiative include
Business Ethics, International
Bribery and Corruption, and University
