Corporate Social Responsibility Practice in Shipping Logistics Industry: A Practitioners Perspectives

Simon S. M. Yuen*, Mike H. K. Kan, and Annie H.C. Ko
Abstract— Without doubt, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is vital to enhance corporate sustainability and competitiveness. In this study, Carroll’s CSR pyramid and Carter & Rogers theoretical framework of sustainability for supply chain management (SSCM) were adopted to analyze the views on CSR and sustainability of logistics and shipping corporates and industry in Hong Kong. Eight elements are adopted as internal and external elements. Five interviewees who have been working in the industry were interviewed to express what they thought on CSR and sustainability of their companies and the industry. They provided valuable views and examples aligned with the revised model. The findings would be helpful for filling the literature gap and provides a foundation for further studies of CSR practices in other sectors / industries. The limitation of this research is that it only focuses on qualitative research (i.e. personal interview and case study). Future research should be applied with quantitative approach using a large sample of companies in order to generalize results.

Index Terms— Corporate social responsibility, shipping, logistics, Hong Kong.
