A business outlook that acknowledges responsibilities to stakeholders not traditionally considered, including suppliers, customers, and employees, as well as the local and international communities and their natural environments in which the business operates. As a major part of society, businesses must become more accountable for every aspect of life, work, and the environment upon which their policies and practices have an impact.
