Abstract:In Britain, debates about how business should be conducted date back at least to the 18th-century controversies around the activities of the British East India Company, which held a monopoly on trade with India and, for an extended period, effectively administered much of India. The idea that companies should be judged not only on the size of their profits but also on the way that they treat their workers and the impact they have on the environment and the community became more prominent in Britain in the second half of the 19th century, after rapid industrialisation.

- The World Guide to CSR: A Country-by-Country Analysis of Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility
The World Guide to CSR is the first book to provide comparable national profiles that describe the evolution and practice of Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility (CSR) for 58 countries and 5 global regions. Each regional and national profile includes key information about the relevant CSR history, country-specific issues, trends, research and leading organisations. The purpose of the book is to give CSR professionals (including managers, consultants, academics and NGOs focusing on the social, environmental and ethical responsibilities of business) a quick reference guide to CSR in different regional and national contexts. This unique resource will be an essential acquisition for all organisations who need to benchmark their CSR strategies throughout different regions and cultures and want the best possible intelligence on the key issues and concerns relating to corporate social responsibility in all of the markets in which they operate.
