Reflexiones Sobre Responsabilidad Social Empresarial, Responsabilidad Pública Y La Sostenibilidad Medioambiental


  • Elena Inglada Galiana
  • José Manuel Sastre Centeno


El artículo expone la problemática que supone promover la sostenibilidad por medio de la responsabilidad social y la responsabilidad pública. Ambas adoptan una ética ciudadana que enlaza el humanismo, la protección al medio ambiente y el desarrollo económico necesario para proporcionar los elementos materiales que garanticen un nivel de vida digno. La problemática estriba en que los dos términos de la ecuación sean compatibles para que lleguen a una solución. La responsabilidad social y la social empresarial son dos factores necesarios para establecer un marco social dinámico y sostenible dentro de una estructura capitalista, lo cual obliga a ciudadanos y empresas a un consumo responsable y a una inversión responsable y sostenible. La responsabilidad de los poderes públicos es procurar las medidas coercitivas necesarias para mantener el equilibrio. Y la de los tres factores, ciudadanos, empresas y poderes públicos, será luchar por una sostenibilidad posible. The article discusses the problems posed by the promotion of sustainability through social responsibility and public accountability. Both adopt a citizen ethic linking with humanism, environmental protection and the economic development needed to provide the material elements that ensure a decent standard of living. The problem is that the two terms of the equation need to be consistent to find a solution. Social responsibility and corporate social are two factors needed to establish a dynamic and sustainable social framework within a capitalist structure, which requires citizens and companies to develop responsible consumer habits and responsible and sustainable investment strategies. The responsibility of government is to ensure the enforcement measures necessary to maintain the balance. And the three factors, citizens, businesses and public authorities, to fight for a potential sustainability
