Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR) is also known as "Corporate Citizenship," "Corporate Opportunity," "Socially Responsible Business," "Responsible
Business," and "Corporate Social Accountability."
All of these terms, while having minor differences in definition, refer to the same concept that corporations and businesses have a responsibility beyond that to their investors, owners, stockholders and customers to the wider community.
Those who patronize, invest or own the business, along with those who are neither patrons, investors nor owners, but are impacted by the business are called "stakeholders."-.
