The current Peruvian context is the heir of two great cultural traditions: on the one hand, the legacy of several Andean cultures that enabled the configuration of the Inca civilisation and empire (1430–1534 BC); on the other, the cultural heritage and tradition of Western civilisation received through the Spaniards in the mid 16th century.

Both cultural traditions have had religious, social, ecological and economic influences on CSR and its particular development in Perú. For example, the concept of ‘Andean reciprocity’ can be thought of as an historical precedent for CSR (Franco 2007: 4). In a culture that did not utilise money as a medium of exchange, reciprocity defined the interaction between individuals, not only in social and economic contexts, but also in religious and ecological terms as well. This characteristic of Andean culture continues to have influence through endemic perspectives on social relations and the way some people in the Peruvian Andes relate to the environment and to responsibility.
