Abstract:

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has captured great attention and importance in recent years, particularly in the clothing industry. Currently, in order to respond to market requirements, clothing companies are increasing their focus on aspects related to production, working conditions and respect for human rights. The paper examines selected Polish and British clothing companies through the prism of CSR implementation in their business practices. The research objective of the paper is the assessment of the state of CSR advancement in Polish and British clothing companies. The paper presents the results of a qualitative study based on semi-structured interviews with mid-level managers of these companies. The empirical study described in this paper shows how social responsibility is understood by the representatives of Polish and British clothing companies, what kind of CSR activities are pursued by these companies, and how they benefit from these activities.
