Social responsibility of Emenite Asbestostes therefore suggests the obligation a firm must undertake to discharge on its are of operation or to individuals working for such firm or organization.
From the above expostulations, it is evident that the social responsibility of a form consists of both internal and external commitments.
The essence of scrutinizing the degree to which a firm fulfills its obligation to the society and its employee is a direct measure of the integrity of that firm, as well as the determinant of its place in this era of modern Emenite Asbestostes conventionalities.
Also very important to note is the fact that a Emenite Asbestostes in discharging its social responsibilities satisfactorily simultaneously attracts to itself both prestige and progress – as the people are more want to patronize its product and acclaim its modesty.
Moreso, just like Shakespeare wrote “The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power”… it will be a gross anti-humanity for a firm to enjoy all it benefit alone, without remembering the goose that lays the golden eggs. Common sense therefore demands that production other manufacturing firms should for some of their activities that releases adverse social effects viz Community pollution, decay, health hazards, displacement of human settlement etc. discharge certain compensative duties.
Some developed countries, especially the industrialist countries of the western block, out of altruism and not compensation, fulfill certain gratis to the poor undeveloped countries that are its raw materials procuring sources.
