Investing in Corporate Social Responsibility covers recent corporate ethics issues and the damage that revelations of unethical practice can do to stock markets. It explains how businesses can avoid these problems and outlines the criteria whereby companies are seen to be 'socially responsible'.
The essential guide also includes a full directory of 300 companies listed on the FTSE4Good index as well as tables showing how companies fit the criteria. Investing in Corporate Social Responsibility provides an invaluable business guide to understanding the issues and benefits of corporate social responsibility.
