This CSR Glossary contains 182 entries, divided in 12 different subjects.
In the items where we indicate 2 different sources, the first one is the original source and the one between brackets is the source from where the chosen definition was taken.
Whenever possible, we also present the websites from where the definitions were taken and websites related to each one of the items. We believe this will give the users access to lots of extra information and encourage them to proceed with further research.
