A road to organisational perdition? Business, ethics and corporate social responsibility. School of economic and Business Sciences, University of the Witwatersrand. The paper delineates a heuristic device comprising relationships between levels of instrumentality towards Corporate Social Responsibility CSR implicit in differential theoretical organisational approaches, associated managerial freedom in ethical decision making, and corresponding managerial moral orientations. Prominent theoretical approaches to CSR including: criticalism, fundamentalism, social corporatism, social institutionalism and moralism identified in the extant literature are delineated. These approaches are synthesised and articulated with the concepts of degrees of CSR instrumentality, ethical freedom and managerial moral orientations to produce a composite heuristic device with specific potential practical implementations.
Sustainable Cities and Society
The ethical analysis typically has the following four central components:. But all four aspects are relevant to sustainability, which is not only about living with constraints, parameters, and limits but also about prescribing some inherently wrong or causally harmful types of action, and about creating the proper kind of sensibility, motivation, and moral commitment in people. In sum, virtue, rightness, consequence, and context are all ethically important in navigating sustainability. A sustainable society lives within the carrying capacity of its natural and social system. It has a system of rules and incentives that promote replenishing and limit depletion and pollution. A sustainable society builds upon the commitment of its members to conform to these rules voluntarily, and it enforces them when necessary.
Social sustainability is an often overlooked aspect of sustainability, as sustainable development discussions often focus on the environmental or economic aspects of sustainability. All three dimensions of sustainability must be addressed to attain the most sustainable outcome possible. Socially sustainable communities are equitable, diverse, connected and democratic and provide a good quality of life. Social sustainability combines design of the physical realm with design of the social world — infrastructure to support social and cultural life, social amenities, systems for citizen engagement, and space for people and places to evolve. From a business perspective, social sustainability is about understanding the impacts of corporations on people and society.

Sustainable development is the organizing principle for meeting human development goals while simultaneously sustaining the ability of natural systems to provide the natural resources and ecosystem services on which the economy and society depend. The desired result is a state of society where living conditions and resources are used to continue to meet human needs without undermining the integrity and stability of the natural system. Sustainable development can be defined as development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainability goals, such as the current UN-level Sustainable Development Goals , address the global challenges, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.

Sustainable agriculture is farming in sustainable ways meeting society's present food and textile needs, without compromising the ability for current or future generations to meet their needs. There are many methods to increase the sustainability of agriculture. When developing agriculture within sustainable food systems , it is important to develop flexible business process and farming practices. Agriculture has an enormous environmental footprint , playing a significant role in causing climate change , water scarcity , land degradation , deforestation and other processes;  it is simultaneously causing environmental changes and being impacted by these changes. For example, one of the best ways to mitigate climate change is to create sustainable food systems based on sustainable agriculture.
Metrics details. A thorosugh literature review suggests that there is a link between corporate social responsibility CSR or corporate social performance CSP and financial performance. In addition, there are relevant theoretical underpinnings and empirical studies that have often used other concepts, including corporate citizenship, stakeholder management and business ethics. In this light, this contribution reports on how CSR is continuously evolving to reflect contemporary societal realities.
