Title ChapterChapter 1. Framing Responsible Business: History and the State of the Planet
his eBook provides a theoretically sound, but highly relevant, introduction to the topic of socially and environmentally responsible business. While the eBook strongly draws from the classic background theories such as business ethics, sustainable development, and corporate social responsibility, those concepts are applied to the most current practices. Practice boxes highlight interesting details, cases and statistics; figures extensively illustrate the theoretical concepts; and end-of-chapter review questions assure the learning process. Recommended links and further readings both deepen an understanding of theoretical knowledge and allow application in each chapter.
