3. Industry Sectors

This includes CSR principles in specific sectors such as banking and finance, clothing, pharmaceuticals, food and drink, energy and professional services.

4. Private Initiatives

This includes examples of CSR policies from international corporations such as Coca Cola, Dell, Ericson, Hewlett-Packard, Ford, General Electric, Mitsubishi, Shell and Wal Mart.
