Example text

CC in this respect is regarded as a choice to ‘put something back’ into the community, but since it is merely ‘desired’ by the community it is, according to Carroll (1991: 42), ‘less important than the other three categories’, namely economic, legal and ethical responsibilities. Many present CC’s contribution to the debate on corporate philanthropy as one that brings a strategic focus. As opposed to corporations engaging in charity simply for the sake of it, CC presents a case for strategic philanthropy.

For instance, Andriof and McIntosh (2001a) talk of CC as corporate ‘societal’ responsibility but use it synonymously with CSR. Similarly, in a number of papers, Maignan and colleagues (Maignan and Ferrell 2000; Maignan et al. 1999) define CC as ‘the extent to which businesses meet the economic, legal, ethical and discretionary responsibilities imposed on them by their stakeholders’ (Maignan and Ferrell 2000: 284). This is largely synonymous with the Carroll (1991) definition of CSR. Much of the CC literature currently uses the concept in this sense, stressing various aspects of CSR, such as sustainability (Marsden 2000), the stewardship role of business (Reilly and Kyj 1994) or drawing conceptual lines towards the stakeholder approach (Davenport 2000).

In essence, the point is that in law, businesses are recognised as being capable of acting il/legally and as having duties and rights of legal protection and compensation. Businesses can enter into legal agreements, own property, employ workers, sue and be sued. As a result businesses can be treated in the eyes of the law as if they were people and a company is therefore described in law as being an ‘artificial person’. This enables corporations to be subject to the law notwithstanding the identity of any particular owners or managers by virtue of the principal of ‘perpetual succession’.
