Companies increasingly expand their corporate social responsibility (CSR) and ethical management understanding the positive impact on the bottom line. The vast majority of Standard & Poor’s 500 companies publish sustainability reports describing their program challenges and achievements. These proactive efforts can promote respect for their company in the marketplace which can result in higher sales, enhance employee loyalty, and attract better personnel to the firm.
