TORRES SOLIS, José Ramón e MOROKA, Keonethebe. Innovative corporate social responsibility in Botswana. The Debswana mining company study case. Contad. Adm [online]. 2011, n.233, pp. 91-104. ISSN 0186-1042.
This paper presents a study case on innovative corporate social responsibility as a very important aspect of management planning and, in the process, explores some trends and new ideas pertaining to corporate social responsibility in mining industries. Some pertinent literature is reviewed as a theoretical frame to introduce the presentation of the Debswana Mining Company case to show innovative corporate social responsibility in the mining industries in Botswana. The paper also critically discusses implementation of this aspect and concludes with some remarks and opinions on it. As a result of this study case we may observe the highly positive interaction between this company and the Botswana government on behalf of the economic development of this country, not omitting to point out some serious social difficulties that have to be overcome in conjunction with government public policies issuance. It is important to emphasize that this work attempts to describe some facts which we consider important in social responsibility, observed in a particular organization, seeking to build a study case that may be relevant for managerial considerations in a field that has been scarcely treated in the administrative literature.
