Organizations around the world, and their stakeholders, are becoming increasingly aware of the need for and benefits of socially responsible behaviour. The objective of social responsibility is to contribute to sustainable development.

An organization's performance in relation to the society in which it operates and to its impact on the environment has become a critical part of measuring its overall performance and its ability to continue operating effectively. This is, in part, a reflection of the growing recognition of the need to ensure healthy ecosystems, social equity and good organizational governance. In the long run, all organizations' activities depend on the health of the world's ecosystems. Organizations are subject to greater scrutiny by their various stakeholders. The perception and reality of an organization's performance on social responsibility can influence, among other things:

⎯ its competitive advantage;

⎯ its reputation;

⎯ its ability to attract and retain workers or members, customers, clients or users;

⎯ the maintenance of employees' morale, commitment and productivity;

⎯ the view of investors, owners, donors, sponsors and the financial community; and

⎯ its relationship with companies, governments, the media, suppliers, peers, customers and the community in       which it operates.
