Corporate Social Responsibility: An Islamic Approach

Amra Nuhanović, Adisa Delić

Abstract


Social responsibility has become increasingly important in recent times. The term “corporate social responsibility” (CSR) is also found in the literature, treated by the Islamic economy and finance. Islamic CSR is based on the principles of Shariah. Therefore, the main objective of this paper is to study CSR approaches of Islamic and Conventional Economics. Financial institutions, corporations and enterprises need much more to do CSR practices, to promote CSR that underpinned under the principles of Shariah. The main goal of the paper is to analyse and explore the theoretical and practical aspects of social responsibility from the aspect of Islamic economy and finance. The conducted research showed that there is no significant deviation of the principles of Islamic economy and finances versus the traditional principles of social responsibility. The only difference is that the principles of Islamic economy and finances include a higher degree of application of ethical principles, which should result in moral and ethical economic development of society.
