This is the world’s first complete reference on CSR, compiled by the Institute for Corporate Cultural Affairs (the ICCA). The entries have been written by leading experts, leading global thinkers and CSR practitioners.

In these pages lie the answers to questions such as:

  • What do we mean by CSR?
  • In what way are organizations viewed as citizens of the countries in which they operate?
  • How does a company know when it is operating in a sustainable way
  • What is ethical investment?

The reference also lists and describes the most important organizations and landmarks in the field of CSR.

The book comprises 339 terms, which are split into core concepts, key words and definitions to form the standard reference for managers, academics, teachers, students, officials and volunteers in the field of CSR.

This is a timely and innovative contribution to the field of Corporate Social Responsibility – the definitive terminology reference on CSR, business society relations and the organizations and standards in the field.

From the Back Cover:

This book is the vital, definitive "must have" compendium for practitioners both in business and government and civil society as well as academics and students in the fields of CSR, sustainability, corporate governance and business ethics.

The "A to Z of CSR" is a unique publication providing an easy-to-use guide to the rapidly expanding field of corporate social responsibility: from general concepts such as sustainability, stakeholder management, business ethics and human rights to more specific topics such as carbon trading, microfinance, biodiversity, the Base of the Pyramid model and globalisation. In addition to definitions of the most important terms across the wide range of CSR associated topics, this book also covers all the most important codes and guidelines, such as the Equator Principles, the UN Global Compact and ISO standards, as well as providing background on organisations such as the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and Transparency International and profiles of CSR in particular industries and regions. The "A to Z of CSR" is also unique in that it has brought together for the first time over a hundred of the worlds leading thinkers, opinion formers, academics and business people to write on each subject in their own words.

Anita Roper, Director of Sustainability, The Alcoa Corporation

"A valuable contribution to the development of CSR knowledge for practitioners, researchers, teachers and students."
Professor Jeremy Moon, Director, International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility, Nottingham University Business School

"'A-Z in CSR' unravels the clutter of a decade's experimentation."
Simon Zadek, Chief Executive, AccountAbility; Senior Fellow, Centre for Government and Business, Kennedy School, Harvard University
