Corporate Social Responsibility: supporters vs. opponents of the concept

Halina Chwistecka-Dudek



Abstract

The goal of the study is to present Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR)in the context of different views of the concept. The representatives of the tradition-al, conservative trend claim that the only purpose of the enterprises’ activity is to maximize profit. On the other hand, the representatives of the socio-humanistic, reformist trend emphasize the fact that the success of a company relies on sustainable development resulting from including three, economic, environmental and social di-mensions in its activities. The difference of views on CSR appears to arise from the multi-dimensionality of the concept and locating it on the border of ethical reflection and economic analysis. Thus, it does not mean the same to all CSR representatives.
