He postulated that CSR is a global phenomena & issue, and as a part of the globe, EU is trying to create a stakeholder democracy since there lies a close relationship between CSR & stakeholders. CSR contains both social and ecological issues. Hence, now-a- days the buzz word is “CSER – Corporate Social & E c o l o g i c a l Responsibility”, which would ultimately lead to Sustainable Development. The major motive behind such type of CSR activities is environmental protection and sustainable development that means looking forward to our future generation, what we would leave behind ourselves for our next generation.
