The A to Z of CSR - Introduction.

Wayne Visser and Dirk Matten.


Index terms.
This book is the vital, definitive "must have" compendium for practitioners both in business and government and civil society as well as academics and students in the fields of CSR, sustainability, corporate governance and business ethics.

The "A to Z of CSR" is a unique publication providing an easy-to-use guide to the rapidly expanding field of corporate social responsibility: from general concepts such as sustainability, stakeholder management, business ethics and human rights to more specific topics such as carbon trading, microfinance, biodiversity, the Base of the Pyramid model and globalisation. In addition to definitions of the most important terms across the wide range of CSR associated topics, this book also covers all the most important codes and guidelines, such as the Equator Principles, the UN Global Compact and ISO standards, as well as providing background on organisations such as the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and Transparency International and profiles of CSR in particular industries and regions. The "A to Z of CSR" is also unique in that it has brought together for the first time over a hundred of the worlds leading thinkers, opinion formers, academics and business people to write on each subject in their own words.
