Does a company do well, by doing good?

In my previous blog post “Look out! Stop the ‘Killer Jeans’!” you could learn more about ethical and unethical garments and about companies which follow the green trend and produce organic and substantial clothing like H&M with its Conscious Collection as well as Nike and C&A.

The fact that an increasing number of companies is aware of environmental and social responsiblity and that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) becomes more and more popular recently caught my attention and encouraged me to continue writing about that topic. In this blog post I want to get to know more about Corporate Social Responsibility and I also want to find responses to the questions I recently asked in my blog posts. I want to learn what CSR is all about, whether CSR is just a current trend and whether and how companies are benefiting from it.
