Corporate social responsibility is an interesting topic. Skeptics dismiss the topic as a corporate public relations stunt and some investors see it as pit into which resources are poured without any noticeable return. There are reasons to be skeptical. In the past, corporations have been notoriously exploitative and the result has been the rich getting richer at the expense of the poor. Corporations have been slow learners. I believe, however, there are good reasons to be sanguine about the future.
