Has CSR become a buzzword? We hear about CSR more and more. In the past, it used to be an additional thing companies included in their activities and communicational strategy. With the rising-up of sustainability in the global demand of goods and services, it continues to be an important tool to increase your competitive advantage, and it is also becoming a legal condition to run a business in many countries. It is the case of Europe, with the CSRD, or India. But it’s the same in many other countries. So it is now necessary for corporations, entrepreneurs (big or small), managers, employees and researchers develop a good base of knowledge on CSR.
