This paper deals with the results of the Survey of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR_II) carried out by the Department of Economics (FCS-UDELAR) to private companies in the industry,commerce and services during the second quarter of 2007. We took into account Montevideo as well as the metropolitan area. The survey is part of a Project on Corporate Social Responsibility funded by the Sectoral Commission for Scientific Research (CSIC) and the Christian Association of Business Managers (ACDE). The main objective of this survey was to obtain objective and reliable information on the activities of corporate social responsibility conducted by the Uruguayan companies. Therefore, we included questions about the relationship of companies with their employees, customers, competitors, shareholders, community, state and the environment. Moreover, some questions allowed us to shed light about the images, views and the role of Uruguayan enterprises regarding to the activities of corporate social responsibility in Uruguay.
