With the changing expectations of consumers, employees and regulators, being best in the world is no longer enough. Businesses are now also expected to be best for the world: to be socially and environmentally responsible, sustainable and ethical. Based on the idea that strategic CSR offers the most holistic and effective approach to corporate social responsibility, the author presents the key concepts, theories and philosophical approaches to CSR, along with the practical tools needed to implement this knowledge in the real world. The book is split into three parts; the first part provides the theoretical background of CSR, the second part examines various CSR approaches and how they can be implemented, and the third part discusses measuring and communicating CSR. Each chapter contains questions for reflection & discussion, exercises, and case studies from globally recognised brands such as Ben & Jerry's, Nestle, Marks & Spencer, TOMS Shoes, LEGO, Coca-Cola and McDonald's. The book is complemented by chapter specific lecturer PowerPoint slides, which can be found here. Suitable reading for students on Corporate Social Responsibility modules.

One of those books that will become something of a timeless anchor point. Quite simply, Debbie Haski-Leventhal has written the best textbook on strategic CSR I’ve ever seen, one I’ve been waiting for without quite knowing it, for a long time. This book is Drucker-like - it is transcendent; It is about the biggest business opportunity of the 21st century; and it is a book written with such grace, such relevance, and so creative in terms of engaging questions that learners, and executive educators, will love it. It unites the best in learning theory with the worldwide movement to educate globally responsible managers who possess the mindsets and mental models, the positive leadership qualities, and the intrinsic sense of purpose needed to unite success with significance.
