Ryerson Institute for the Study of Corporate Social Responsibility
The goal of the CSR Institute is to explore issues and increase understanding of the linkages between business ethics, Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development. In pursuit of its research and publication agenda, the Institute will:
- establish close ties with the private sector, government, civil society, and other academic/professional centres of excellence to create improved understanding, research and practical solutions to business ethics, CSR and SD.
- explore the role of government, inter-governmental bodies, business groups, civil society groups, labour organizations, and consumers vis-a-vis business ethics, CSR and SD.
- promote collaborative teaching and learning in business ethics, CSR and SD among colleagues at Ryerson University.
- develop training for undergraduate and graduate students on CSR and SD issues.
CSR research and related events and activities, focusing on innovative regulatory approaches (through law and non-legal techniques).
