The term corporate social responsibility (CSR) has been a continuously evolving concept over the past half century as a strategy to signify social and environmental conscience. However, this philanthropic strategy has become a new paradigm of competitive advantage across many industries. As this strategy continues to progress, the definition is warranted to best capture the essence of the term. Through the review of literature coupled with personal expertise and personal value assessment, a data scientist presents a conceptual definition for CSR in the 21st century.
