Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is just about everything in today’s business environment. It is no longer a public relations exercise with some philanthropic activities. It is now a requirement for Public Companies to report such activities in their Annual Reports. Local Companies who may be part of the Global Supply Chain will also have to be in compliance with their Principal offices on Social Responsibilities (SR).

Labor and Human Rights, Environmental care, legal compliance and observance of international initiatives and conventions, consumers’ interest and engagement with all Stakeholders are commitments expected of Companies in the global trend of doing business. Globalization has given a new dimension to CSR - the new trend introduces Social Responsibility (SR) standards that may impact your businesses, whether as an MNC or SME Organization.
 
Would the SR concept be a new trade barrier or another tool to assess the competencies of Malaysian companies fighting for a slice of the international trade? Professionals are expected to advise their companies on this new trend that impact on managing businesses whether it is human rights, business outsourcing or the fast pace of technological advances that have consequences on the stakeholders.
