CSR or Corporate Social Responsibility is a form of corporate self-regulation integrated into a business through the three P’s: profit, planet, and people.

The company has also had a positive impact on the environment in that it 58% of the electricity used in its stores are from renewable energy sources in addition to reducing their water usage by 22%. Still this hasn’t helped their profitability because over the past 4 years, their CSR policies have not really changed, while their profits have. In 2008 Starbuck’s shares declined nearly 50%, due to overexpansion, and consumer unwillingness to pay so much for coffee, not CSR. However, recently the company has seen a complete turn around and an increase in stock price by almost 500% since 2008. Its CSR policies are still similar to that of 2008, which means the its CSR has not really effected the profitability of the company. Instead it came down to consumer demand, and the slowing down of company expansion.
Overall corporate social responsibility is viewed with great skepticism. Some see it is absolutely necessary, while others see it as a waste of time and money. Still, when it comes down to it CSR is necessary because it helps to put a company at a competitive advantage against other companies, it provides positive PR, and helps to market/sell a company’s products.
