This article examines how corporate social and environmental responsibilities (CSR) are evaluated and instrumented by various stakeholders: enterprises, specialized agencies, NGOs, and investors. This analysis questions whether a CSR industry has emerged over the past decade, analogous to the value creation industry that developed during the 1990's. Several lines of research related to this hypothesis are suggested throughout the article.
