Since the general acceptance of the field of corporate social responsibility worldwide, corporate entities and those who act for them either as executives or qordinaryq employees are expected to be socially responsible. Being socially responsible has a number of quantifiable and unquantifiable benefits for the entity and its stakeholders.
