The aim of this Special Issue is to shed light on the role that CSR plays in any company’s strategic approach.
CSR offers companies a wide range of possibilities in order to integrate sustainable development policies into their inner activities. Furthermore, these activities should no longer be considered charity actions but rather a real strategic core for the company. The ability to develop actions of great impact and social acceptance, as well as giving them visibility, can represent competitive advantage and build the basis for differentiation.
Therefore, aligning the strategies of the company with the objectives of sustainable development through a solid CSR proposal is not only desirable, but it is also profitable in the medium and long term. Society’s and consumers’ positive perception of this type of actions directly influences consumers’ trust and loyalty. This Special Issue considers CSR a key element on which organizations should focus. Thus, CSR policies are desirable both for the entities themselves and for society as a whole.
As a consequence, this Special Issue will comprise a collection of empirical and theoretical studies covering a wide range of themes related to CSR as a strategic asset for companies. We encourage submissions that address issues related (but not limited) to the following main topics:
- CSR literacy and CSR initiatives;
- CSR ,anagement;
- Marketing and CSR;
- Strategic CSR;
- CSR social impact;
- Impact of CSR on consumers: trust and loyalty;
- CSR and profitability;
- CSR strategies to achieve UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Papers selected for this Special Issue will undergo a rigorous peer-review process with the aim of the rapid and wide dissemination of research results.
