RESPOND TO CLASSMATES POST:
Corporate social responsibility is the liability of an organization for the impact of its arrangements and activities on society and the environment, through honest behavior. There is contributions to sustain development and stakeholders expectations are taken into consideration. Their business approach to contribute to sustainable development by delivering economic, social and environmental benefits for all stakeholders. I decided to research Nationwide Financial Service inc, they rank the highest in community and environmental categories. They are known for community engagement practices and have a partnership with The American Red Cross and the Columbus Children’s hospital. Their employees donate blood and Nationwide Financial Service also are known to donate to the disaster program. Pappalardo states, ” Nationwide has also partnered with Feeding America and donated 20 million meals over the course of 14 years.” According to my findings I think I will be more incline to support corporations that care more about the impact they have on the environment.
