					Report on Corporate Social Responsibility

Complete the following assignment and submit your work to your teacher.

Your task is to analyse, on the basis of research, a particular company's commitment to corporate social responsibility. Your report should be
between 750 and 1000 words in length. (3-4 pages)

Here is a partial list of the commitments that you should include in your research:

       non-discriminatory hiring, promotion, and retention practices;
       implementing the Persons with Disabilities Act and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act;
       environmental issues;
       customer relationships;
       supplier relationships.

Steps in writing the report

    1. Choose a business. The Industry Canada (http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/csr-rse.nsf/eng/h_rs00020.html) and Corporate Knights
       (http://www.corporateknights.ca/special-reports/63-best-50-corporate-citizens.html) websites are good places to look for a corporation for
       this report. Communicate your choice of business with your teacher before proceeding.
    2. Gather information about the business’ commitment to corporate social responsibility from the business’ website, newspapers, magazines
       and other Internet sources. If possible, you should interview, in person or by email, someone at the business.
    3. Complete the stakeholder analysis matrix found below. You will include this document as an appendix to your report.
    4. Write the report. Make sure your report includes the following:
       a) title page
       b) table of contents
       c) headings
       d) citations (and a works cited page)
       e) appendices (e.g. the stakeholder analysis matrix)
