International 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 International Business Ethics, International Bribery and Corruption, and University and Business Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility.
