Abstract [en]

Background: Corporations are established and organized in order to create economic values for their owners and the main aim of every business enterprise is to be profitable and satisfy the financial expectations of their shareholders. However, corporate social responsibility focuses on the ethical aspects of corporate business in order to achieve the balance between the profitability and social responsibility. Nongovernmental organizations through their activities promote the respect for human rights and environmental care within the corporate world.

Purpose and Scope: To make an in-depth study about the role of nongovernmental organizations regarding corporate social responsibility in order to increase the understanding of corporate social responsibility.

Methodology: We used literature research for our thesis and we analysed the secondary data related to the corporate social responsibility.

Result: The main activities of nongovernmental organizations regarding corporate social responsibility are: to investigate and monitor companies’ social performance, to inform and report the cases of socially irresponsible corporate behaviour, to engage in formulation and observation of Agreements and Codes of Conduct Governing Corporate Labour and Environmental Policies and to condemn the human rights abuse and environmental damage within the corporate world.
