There are endless definitions for the phrase Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and even more so the beliefs on how it affects the purchasing decisions of consumers and business owners alike. At Mantic BBS we find the best definition to be:
"the act of doing business in a way that maintains or improves both the customer's and society's well-being."
And can include one or more of the four kinds of responsibilities or dimensions: economic, legal, ethical, and philanthropic.
According to Cone, Inc. and their 2009 Cone Consumer New Media Study, the following statistics were found after surveying American consumers:
- 74% expect companies to join conversations about their corporate responsibility practices happening on new media.
- 82% want companies to report on their social and environmental issues and progress.
- 81% want companies to talk openly with nonprofit organizations or government agencies.
- 80% want companies to advocate about important social or environmental issues.
