For me, one of the more frustrating aspects of the past year was the revival of “CSR skepticism” in certain quarters of the business media in the wake of several major corporate mistakes and crises in the banking, energy and auto sectors. After all, when there is insufficient “corporate responsibility,” there are two main options: more corporate responsibility or more regulation (or both) -- but not a return to the 1980s philosophy that business should focus only on maximizing profit and leave externalities to governments and society.
