What is a socially responsible effort? Social responsibility comes from the belief that people, governments, and organizations have a responsibility to the greater welfare of society. What each person determines to be socially responsible, however, is subject to personal ideals and beliefs. Examples of socially responsible efforts include, but are not limited to:
Recycling and using CFL lightbulbs (individual or organizational)
Donating time to volunteer organizations
Developing green buildings

o What are the community s responsibilities to the individuals?
o As a member of this community, what do you think it means to be socially responsible?
