The business world has always been inhabited by both pragmatists and visionaries, which makes the issue of corporate social responsibility (CSR) the perfect battle ground. The maximization of profits is at the heart of how entrepreneurialism works. However, CSR acknowledges that there are ethical issues at stake involving every business decision. Consumers are increasingly interested in the origin of products and the transparency of the supply chain, and many organizations are willing to indicate their CSR and ethical selections.

Practical implications

Originality/value

The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to‐digest format.
