ABSTRACT
The article focuses on corporate social responsibility (CSR) and quality management. It is one of the areas of the corporate social performance model, which also include public responsibility and economic responsibility. CSR is defined by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development as businesses' continuing commitment to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the work force and their families, as well as the local community and society. While there is a clear objective with quality management, CSR is deemed fundamentally ambiguous.
