What is Corporate Social Responsibility?

Thru many decades, it was assumed that the only responsibility of the companies was solely to generate profits, regardless of the social and environmental impact associated with their activities. Nowadays, this is changing, as the company must take into account that its activities have both a positive and a negative effect on society.

Corporate Social Responsibility (RSE) is defined as the ongoing commitment of businesses to behave ethically and contribute to economic development, improving the quality of life of workers and their families, as well as the local community and society. In short, it is the responsibility of companies for their impacts on society.

For it, the companies seek the preservation of the environment and the sustainability of future generations, with a vision that integrates respect for people, ethical values, the community and the environment.
