A Survey-Based Discussion on Perception and Attitude towards CSR in China


The rapid growth of China’s economy is changing the current pattern of the international market. Nevertheless, scholars have concluded that there is a serious misconduct of CSR among Chinese enterprises. This research is conducted based on a survey to some companies in Guangdong Province to investigate the perception and attitudes of employees from enterprises towards CSR and sustainable development with focuses on three aspects which includes enterprises’ understanding of CSR, the influence of enterprises’ stakeholders on their CSR and what enterprises should do to assume CSR. It can be concluded that some enterprises have had some extent of CSR awareness and do assume CSR in their practices, however enterprises’ attention to CSR is still not sufficient enough and only confines to solving social responsibility problems that closely related to their economic interests.
