The term corporate citizenship is typically used to describe corporations in their socio-political role. It recognizes that corporations are involved in social activity beyond mere financial activities and carry obligations to contribute to the social well-being of a society. As the term ‘citizen’ indicates, the notion is rooted in politics, indicating a recognition of the corporation as a social actor and as responding to non-market pressures. Research of the concept includes both institutionalist and business social scientific methods.
