Abstract

The importance of CSR has recently increased in all economic sectors. Particularly in the retail sector, large international retailers are investing heavily to cope with the ethical demands of consumers and increase their own awareness of CSR issues. Key international retailers have begun to offer some ethical products, consolidating their approach to CSR through offers related to sustainable development and greater fairness in terms of distribution of benefits among all actors in the supply chain. This article discusses the role of ethics and the CSR approaches of retailers in the management of international supply chains. In particular, it illustrates policies and tools adopted by firms that have implemented a CSR approach to managing supply chain relationships.
