The ongoing change in perception of business from a narrow view of profit making to a wider view of a more responsible and sustainable corporation is challenging global enterprises. The paper bases on the understanding that leadership is a key issue in making corporations more responsible. It then develops an organizational leadership perspective focusing on corporate leadership systems supporting corporate social responsibility. It finally tests its relevance with a case study approach in a subsidiary of a global chemical and pharmaceutical company.
