This study analyses the diverse initiatives adopted by international organizations to promote Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the business sector. Particularly, the report examines the eight most prominent international agencies at promoting CSR in the world, among them United Nations (UN), the World Bank (WB) and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). After undertaking the analysis of these organizations, the study intents a comparative analysis among them, by means of a series of significant variables that summarize the nature and magnitude of their proposals. Finally, the agencies’ policies are assessed with regard to the degree of their obligatory nature and their level of involvement in promoting and diffusing CSR.
