Corporate Social Responsibility and Shell in Ireland: A Thin Veneer
Corporate Social Responsibility and Shell in Ireland: A Thin Veneer evaluates Shell's stated commitments to society and the environment in Ireland. It also explores how weak regulation and political facilitation may have influenced Shell to act as poor corporate citizens there. Key themes that emerge throughout the book include community engagement, the meaning of consultation with a community, the nature of leadership, the importance of planning, and ultimately the meaning of responsible behaviour in both a corporate and government context. The book deals with issues of relative power and accountability, and explores the boundaries of a company's responsibilities to a community fractured by its presence.
