Abstract

at the level of business practice. Companies that apply the concept of corporate social
responsibility are aware not only of social and environmental benefits, but also the
economic benefits that this approach brings. Assumptions of social responsibility are to
maximize the market value of the business provided that companies respect the laws and
responsibilities of owners, managers and employees. Benefits of the corporate social
responsibility are not only companies and their stakeholders, but also society. This fact
inspires many large enterprises to start up a socially responsible business. The paper deals
with the corporate social responsibility concept and its implementation in the car industry
in Slovak republic. The aim of the article is basically on the theories of corporate social
responsibility to identify the level of application of this concept in automobile industry in
Slovakia.
Keywords: automobile industry, corporate social responsibility, stakeholders
