by Aline Al Am
International Journal of Environment and Health (IJENVH), Vol. 8, No. 1, 2016

Abstract: Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a movement that has become more and more important in the late 20th century. Its appearance in academic literature has a long history. It is considered at the heart of challenges relevant to sustainable society and sustainable development and it is studied in academia around the world. Despite the continually increasing public interest towards CSR, very little is known of the concept in developing countries. After providing a review of the literature, this research investigates and measures the awareness and implementation of CSR in Lebanon leading to the development of a sustainable society. The study sheds light on the means facilitating the promotion of CSR and the role of the government. The concepts developed from the findings of this research open the way for new researches in the field.
