This compilation analyses the differences between the concepts of ?social responsibility? and ?business ethics?, which are often erroneously understood to be the same. It explains that social responsibility is a characteristic but just one of the many aspects of the much wider concept of business ethics. The collection includes contributions from experts from diverse fields such as industry, academia and non-governmental organizations, who present the theoretical underpinning of the concepts, along with real-life case studies dealing with the varied, hands-on experiences of leaders from different industries. This book will be an insightful read for professionals and researchers in the field of Business and Management.
