The role of a business has gone through a lot of changes in the last few centuries. The model of business and the way businesses are run all have gone through tremendous change.

This tremendous growth has led to rapid developments of the societies and communities that they operate and also have had various adverse affects on these societies and the communities.

Some believe that firms must be responsible and be accountable for their actions and also have a responsibility to contribute to the society or the community, in a larger scale, to the country that they operate in.
