Entrepreneurs are becoming more aware about their social and environmental responsibilities at the inside and outside level of their firms. The new vision about economic development is and must be associated with the human and social advancement and environmental responsibility. This is why, nowadays, entrepreneurs must have an integrated vision of three dimensions: environmental, economic, and social. In a world where each day a great share of the environment is being depleted represents a personal and entrepreneur challenge for a new change. Without it, the future of next generations is not guaranteed. This paper deals with the fundamental role that firms have to play in environmental improvement and the benefits that the practice of environmental and social responsibility might bring to the firms.
