In this paper, we carry out comparative comments on the
definition of corporate social responsibility stated by scholars from
different countries or regions. The literatures are summarized mainly
from the corporate social responsibility practices, corporate
derivatives at the concept of CSR practices (mainly including business
ethics, corporate citizenship, corporate philanthropy, corporate social
performance) and people's ideas on CSR issues. Then we point out the
developing trend of the cross-cultural comparison of CSR based on the
latest literature. Finally, the researches of our country on this field
are also introduced.
