Abstract

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is becoming a topic of significant concern among the experts from both academia and industry all over the world.However, actual adoption of the concept in today’s business world is still sparse especially in the less developing countries including Bangladesh. Most of the businesses in Bangladesh considered philanthropic responsibility as the essential part of CSR.The environmental responsibility is regarded as relatively less important in Bangladesh.Hence, this paper aims to highlight the needs of environmental CSR activities for business organisations in Bangladesh by addressing existing environmental concerns of achieving sustainable development and simultaneously adds knowledge regarding present environmental vulnerability.By reviewing the extensive literature, this study identified several environmental concerns in Bangladesh include air pollution, water pollution, soil degradation and climate change, etc. And all these environmental issues are continuously threatening the human health, ecosystems and economic growth of the country.Therefore, this paper recommends adopting environmental CSR activities by business sectors to reduce their hostile impacts on the environment, as well as, contributes knowledge concerning diverse ecological pollutions in Bangladesh.
