(Edited by Michael Hopkins.) Corporate social responsibility (CSR) covers social, economic, financial and environmental considerations. While human rights are often seen as mainly the social part of CSR, they also partly cover the environmental and economic aspects. For example, labour rights requiring companies to pay fair wages affect the economic aspect. Human rights such as the right to non-discrimination are relevant to the social aspect. And the environmental aspects of corporate activity might affect a range of human rights, such as the right to clean drinking water.
