Network Social Responsibility

The Austrian Network Social Responsibility (a broad coalition of labour and civil society organisations) publishes a critical brochure on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR): “Corporate Social Responsibility. Preciousness or speciousness – That is the question!”. It aims to unmask the myth of CSR – to show what is behind the nice facade of alleged public interest orientation of companies. CSR is little more than a money making machine particularly for the sake of big corporations rather than for the benefit of people or the environment. In essence it pursues the neoliberal free market paradigm of deregulation and empowers big business to set the rules of the game. The position paper is available here as PDF-file (2,67MB)
