Zeitschrift für Wirtschafts- und Unternehmensethik - Journal for Business, Economics & Ethics, 2015, vol. 16, issue 3, 264-287

Abstract: Unternehmen laufen Gefahr, im Zuge ihres oekonomischen Handelns die ethische Perspektive zu vernachlaessigen. Der Ansatz der „Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)“ will hier nachhelfen. CSR besitzt Chancen (u.a. die Profitabilitaet von CSR), sieht sich jedoch auch einigen Herausforderungen gegenueber (u.a. Frage nach der Begruendung von CSR). Menschenrechte koennen als ethischer Referenzrahmen fuer CSR helfen, diese Chancen zu nuetzen und die Herausforderungen zu meistern. (Enterprises face the risk that they neglect the ethical perspective in their economic actions. The approach of “Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)” aims to support enterprises in this regard. CSR offers opportunities (among others the profitability of CSR) but faces also some challenges (e.g. the question concerning the ethical justification of CSR). As an ethical frame of reference human rights can support CSR to take advantage of the opportunities and to meet the challenges.)
