AbstractSummarization: Corporate responsibility has many facets. It can be viewed as an interaction with the society to the mutual benefit of both partners. A corporation produces goods or services that the society demands. Production should be conducted so that its environmental impact is minimal, the economic state of the corporation is viable, labor conditions are good, and compliance with laws and regulations is satisfactory, among others. A model is presented that uses hierarchical fuzzy reasoning that assesses a facet of corporate responsibility, called sustainability, given a number of inputs, called basic indicators. Inputs are normalized on a scale (0, 1) according to their sustainability status and then combined to obtain a sustainability index on (0, 1) for each facet of the corporation. A sensitivity analysis pinpoints the most important indicators affecting sustainability. Two case studies of multinational companies, one of which is headquartered in Greece, are presented in detail. Both are producers of cement and other related building materials.

A corporation should organize its operations so that its environmental impact is minimal, its economic state is viable, labor conditions are good, and compliance with laws and regulations is satisfactory, among others. Corporate responsibility is intimately connected to corporate sustainability which expresses the economic, environmental, and social standing of a company. A responsible corporation embraces the principle of transparency of data pertaining to its performance and its policies and strives for strategies that enhance its sustainability. A model is presented that uses hierarchical fuzzy reasoning to assess corporate sustainability, given a number of inputs, called basic indicators. Inputs are normalized according to their sustainability status and then combined to obtain a sustainability index on [0, 1] for each facet of the corporation. A sensitivity analysis pinpoints the most important indicators affecting sustainability. Two case studies of multinational cement companies are presented in detail.

CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY AWARENESS AND AHI ORGANIZATIONGÜL, Öykü; ; İSTANBUL BİLGİ ÜNİVERSİTESİ (Rating AcademyRating Academy, 2020-05-11)The concept of social responsibility is rooted in the Western tradition and became part of our agenda. Especially the 1960s and the following period were the years when the voices of the civilian movements were heard in higher tones. The pressure that was put by civil society on governments and business was resulted increased social responsibility awareness among all actors. Corporate responsibility, including social responsibility, is about integrating ethical, social, and environmental concerns to business operations.Ahilik emerged from Anatolia with social/military/economic functions. Even though it lost its military functions as the Ottoman Empire arose, Ahilik assumed responsibility for the continuity of social unity for centuries, implemented a foundation for business ethics, and played role in meeting the needs of society. In this study, the advantages of revising Ahilik as part of our historical culture and heritage is discussed for raising awareness of corporate responsibility.
