Corporate social responsibility "has been defined by the World Business Council as ‘the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and to contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families, as well as of the local community and society at large’. The intention of companies adopting a socially responsible corporate attitude is to ensure a positive social, environmental, and economic impact on the communities within which they operate and on all other stakeholders."

Typically corporate social responsibility focuses on improving the environmental and social impact an organization has within its community and the world.
