Corporate Social Responsibility


Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) usually is defined as just an international private business self-regulation. But nowadays more often it is considered as a company’s sense of responsibility towards the community and environment in which it operates. Organizations express this involvement through, among others, their waste and pollution reduction processes, by contributing educational and social programs and by earning adequate returns on the employed resources.

The topics of the course will include, among others: social responsibility and organization, CSR and ethics, CSR and state law and regulations, ethical consumerism, circular economy (closed-loop systems), zero waste policy, corporate volunteering programs, CSR as marketing, CSR and multinationals corporations, controversy around CSR.

The practical aspect of the course will allow students to better understand what CSR really is as well as how it is (and how it could be) used in practice.
