AbstractThis paper concretely defines what corporate social responsibility, or CSR, is and how it has come to be so prevalent in companies today. Many scholars have attempted to define this movement, and still others are trying to discover its origins and its likely future. From Adam Smith to Milton Friedman, many economists have argued the merits and costs of "going green" and the bottom line for the companies that attempt it. This paper will also document what Cisco, held in the UA Foundation's Student Run Portfolio, has done to increase environmental awareness through corporate social responsibility
