Corporate Social Responsibility? What’s all the fuss
about?
“... the private sector can make
a huge deal of difference in
poor people’s life around the
world with balancing between
self-interest and caring for
others, profit and poor which
always have been keeping
distance.”
~ Bill Gates at Davos, 2008
Co-Chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates
Foundation

Understanding your purpose
“Success is knowing your purpose in life, growing to
reach your potential, and sowing seeds that benefit
others”
~ John C. Maxwell
“Reactive firms deny responsibility and do less, defensive firms
admit responsibility but fight it , accommodative firms accept
responsibility by doing all that is required, while proactive
firms anticipate responsibility by doing more than is
required.”
Kai Hockerts, Mette Morsing, Jonas Eder-Hansen, Per Krull
(Copenhagen Business School, Denmark)

The People key
The key on how you make God’s agenda for people
your own.

manufacturing, environmental initiatives, job
creation and economic development.

The Spirit Key (Intuition)
With this key you partner with the spirit by listening
to the intuitive voice.
Let you inner voice guide you in a conflict about profit
maximisation at the expense of society and the
environment. Let the intuitive voice guide you.
Adhering to corporate social responsibilities, is likely
to lead to easier experience when dealing with
politicians and government regulators.

The Risk key
The bible is riddled with stories of faith in the midst of
adversity (David vs Goliath, Moses in front of the Red Sea,
Jesus’ disciples vs the Roman empire).
Small pressure groups should be taken seriously by
corporations. Mohamed Bouziz’s act became a catalyst for the
Tunisian Revolution and the Arab spring.
The risk of CSR is that you yield no measurable results,
yet taking social responsibility seriously, is less likely to
attract public campaigns and demands for government
inquiries against it.

Sponsorship Vs CSR
While Corporate Social Responsibility is built on the premise
of making money in an ethical and sustainable way,
sponsorship programs on the other hand are focused on
creating or building brand awareness.
CSR initiatives are usually broad based and long term as
they focus on community related issues such as poverty
eradication, environmental issues. To the contrary,
sponsorship are usually concerned with addressing a
particular need with the aim of gaining exposure
leverage at that particular time.
