Why this course Corporate Social Responsibility, Corporate Sustainability, Social Responsibility… Different phrases aiming for one thing: sustainable growth and development of the private sector with a positive social impact. But what does this mean? How can the private sector aim for a positive social impact, and how can civil society organisations (or governments) be part of that?
