Carroll’s CSR Pyramid
In this video we look at Carroll’s Corporate Social Responsibility Pyramid, consider our business behaviours towards ethics and CRS. Then we’ll review Porter and Kramer’s extension of the model into Creating Shared Value. The aim is to give some framework to your business strategy on CSR.
Carroll’s simple framework that illustrates how “Corporate social responsibility encompasses the economic, legal, ethical, and discretionary (philanthropic) expectations that society has of organisations at a given point in time” (Carroll)
