Exploring the Five Dimensions of Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has become a fundamental aspect of businesses, encompassing various dimensions. These dimensions include the environmental, economic, social, and governance aspects of CSR:

  • The environmental dimension involves companies going beyond legal compliance to make positive contributions to environmental quality, such as addressing climate change and greenhouse gas emissions. 
  • The economic dimension encourages companies to maximize the good they can do with their financial resources, such as paying employees above the minimum wage and supporting local economies. 
  • The social dimension focuses on mitigating disruptions caused by business operations, supporting education and training programs, and fostering positive relationships with local communities. 
  • The governance dimension emphasizes the importance of effective oversight to ensure adherence to company principles and policies, particularly in areas like bribery. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals serve as a benchmark for measuring progress in CSR.
  • Additionally, companies may include other components in their CSR programs, such as philanthropy, employee volunteerism, supply chain management, user privacy, and more, depending on their priorities.
