Format: Hardcover
There is a important debate to be had about the role of Business in general, and corporations in particular, in the transformation to a more sustainable society.

Sadly, those interested in this debate will find not much of relevance in this collection of essays. As the introductory chapter says, " unashamedly steers clear of most of the theories and academic debates surrounding the subject." Rather, it is aimed at those who "...are looking to pursue a career in a CSR-related field" and "deals with the nuts and bolts of how to run a CSR strategy successfully".

There's a reasonable chapter on how the German stakeholder capitalism model works that would be useful to those who don't know anything about it. Other chapters cover things like how to run a company volunteering programme, or the benefits of sports sponsorship. There is a more reflective chapter on the evolution of CSR which gets close to asking what it is actually for.

Ultimately, though, this is a book for those who do believe that corporations, with a little prodding from the right kind of CSR professional, can be and do good. There's not much reflection on what it means for a corporation to be 'responsible'; RBS gets several positive mentions because it lends money to some renewable energy projects. The word 'tax' appears only once, in the context of a suggestion that filing online might save carbon emissions.
