Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This Special Issue is designed to spotlight contemporary research on comparative corporate social responsibility (CSR) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The impact of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will require changes in business attitudes and behaviours. For example, in support of the UN SDGs agenda 2030, CSR Europe is setting the foundations for being the European Business Hub for the SDGs. CSR Europe engages and supports over 10,000 enterprises already active in 41 CSR National Partners Organisations (https://www.csreurope.org).
Prior research argues that CSR engagement equals a corporate contribution to sustainable development is currently being challenged. However, the current CSR literature practice addresses systemwide sustainability challenges with a limited context.
The Special Issue will, therefore, provide an opportunity for contributors to the broad fields of business, economics, political science, law accounting, finance, marketing, supply chain, international business and management are all welcome. The following themes would be of particular interest (the list is not exhaustive):
- What are the contemporary trends of comparative corporate social responsibility (CSR)?
- What are the relationships between corporate social responsibility (CSR) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
- How the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a global agenda may serve as a reference framework from CSR?
- What are the methodological considerations for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) research?
- What are theoretical implications of comparative CSR?
