September 28, 2011 – Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility Development under support of INTERPIPE had presented first in Ukraine complex corporate social responsibility book “Corporate social responsibility: models and management practice” that is designed for students and professors, CSR specialists, scholars.
Uniqueness of the presented book is that the researches of the Centre for CSR Development are generalized as practices of the companies (gained from the CSR business case contest, organized by the Centre) and best CSR scientific achievements of European and American scholars are given in the book. Theory of social responsibility in the book “Corporate social responsibility: models and management practice” is closely related to practice, so the book would be helpful for economist students and CSR managers.

We hope that “Corporate social responsibility: models and management practice” will become a handbook for professionals and students, who are interested in CSR”.
Dmytro Kysylevskiy, Head of corporate affairs department, INTERPIPE: “It is the second book of the “Management decisions library from INTERPIPE”.
