※What is Corporate Social Responsibility?
According to the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) on the proposed definition of CSR - CSR as a business policy that is committed to a form of corporate self-regulation integrated into a business model that complies with the spirit of the law, ethical standards, and international norms, to contribute to economic development and to improve the employees and their families, and local whole community’s social life quality. CSR is a process with the aim to further some social good, beyond the interests of the firm and that which is required by law, and to embrace responsibility for the company's actions and encourage a positive impact through its activities on the environment, consumers, employees, communities, stakeholders and all other members of the public sphere who may also be considered as stakeholders.
In Taiwan, following the development of Taiwan’s universal education, and improvement of living standard, it has become very clear to those in the business community as well as individuals, the importance of contributing back to the community. Seeing this responsibility, some individuals choose to volunteer; some donate to charities, some support Taiwan’s charity lottery by buying tickets, or help in some way to help society. Many years ago Taiwan's business owners also started CSR activities to contribute to the community in a combined effort to help people in need, not only enhancing employee working conditions, but improving Taiwan’s social environment as well!
