La responsabilidad social de la empresa a la luz de la ética


  • Argandoña, Antonio

    () (IESE Business School)


La responsabilidad social de la empresa es un concepto en auge, pero sometido a fuertes críticas y, sobre todo, que adolece de una debilidad fundamental: carece todavía de un concepto generalmente aceptado, lo que la convierte en una amalgama de propuestas basadas en teorías éticas, sociológicas y económicas, a menudo incompatibles entre sí. Este artículo parte, primero, de diferentes modelos de la organización o de la empresa y de la idea de responsabilidad implícita en los mismos; analiza luego el concepto de responsabilidad, como categoría moral, y discute, finalmente, el significado y contenido de la responsabilidad social de la empresa.
