In particular, there has been a focus on how enterprises align their economic considerations with social and environmental ones. Various terms have been used but Corporate Social Responsibility seems to be the favourite.

Corporate Social Responsibility looks at the wider responsibilities of businesses to society at large. It explores the problems brought about by damage to the physical environment (pollution and degradation and resources) and the risks and opportunities they engender for individual enterprises.
