Corporate social responsibility includes business practices that focus on the betterment of society. Below are several common types of social responsibility a company can practice:
1. Environmentally friendly efforts: Reduce a company’s carbon footprint or resource consumption due to its activities.
2. Giving to a charity: All monetary and non-monetary contributions to national and local charitable institutions.
3. Ethical labor practices: Ensuring the fair treatment of workers as well as providing them with a safe working environment.
4. Volunteering: Companies can send representatives to volunteer at charity events to give back to society without any expectation of getting something in return. Doing so can show a company’s support and concern for social issues.
