Caccam Nike accused of using CSR to hide from its problems, rather than solving them. In fact Ballinger is suggesting the company is continuing with its practices and is instead concentrating on obscuring the truth behind its operations. http://www.corporatecrimereporter.com/ballinger052407.htm
John Is CSR as a crisis management tool really CSR? Nike uses the term CR.
John Companies argue while their activities may seem exploitative their actions are quite beneficial to the communities in which they operate. http://www.mallenbaker.net/csr/page.php?Story_ID=1708
“ The CSR cost for Nike is about $10 million to $12 million a year, just for the CSR staff and expenses, to go to these sustainability meetings all over the world. They have two or three Nike people at every meeting. That’s part of the CSR game.
“ I figure 75 cents per pair of shoes to the worker would fix the problem. If Nike instead paid workers 75 cents more per pair of shoes, do you know what that would cost Nike compared to the CSR cost? That would cost them $210 million a year.”
A commonly used term to describe CSR in its current evolutionary state, CSR was mentioned on national television news for the first time in early 2004. Appears to promote the social at the expense of the environmental dimension so Corporate Responsibility has emerged in preference to CSR
