Back then CSR was just viewed as a form of charity but today it has become a business nomenclature that emphasizes the importance that many organizations are now willing to take to affect change in society in a long-term and sustainable manner. In the current world that is interconnected with information, other stakeholders like customers, employees, and investors expect more from companies. Organizations are expected to positively impact social and environmental issues and generate profit. This is where CSR comes into the picture.

These campaigns change the face of business and create room for improvement towards a more sustainable society. Moreover, they include items ranging from environmental sustainability to corporate social contributions and financial performance, corporate governance, workforce management, and the use of ICTs for development.
