p. 875. CSR and new governancelocked

  • Jeremy Moon

Abstract

‘CSR and new governance’ is concerned with the institutionalization of corporate social responsibility (CSR) within systems of societal governance. CSR emerges as a means of governing business and of bringing business to wider governance agendas—referred to as ‘new governance’. CSR features in a range of new governance systems, particularly in the standards and partnerships that institutionalize responsible business behaviour. The ways in which business defines and manages CSR, through new associations and individual companies, are reviewed, along with multi-actor organizations in which CSR also gets regulated and organized, including UN initiatives and a group of new CSR standards; the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative; the Ethical Trade Initiative; and a group of resource-specific stewardship councils.
