Abstract [en]

This is a case study of top management in a Swedish pulp industry at Skutskär. After decades of proactive response to change, starting in 1976 the pulp industry experienced a rapid and significant restructuring. In 1992, and after a prolonged hold on local investments, came a large-scale investment with major labor reductions, which created a local crisis. The aim of this study is to analyze how top managers of a local business plant perceive and explain their citizenship relationship to the community of the company town during a transition period from 1976 to 2007. Our study shows that too much reliance on top management cost reduction requirements and not caring, or underscoring, local social concerns created gaps and local stakeholder distrust. We discuss how prolonged distrust of the company to bear social responsibility ended up in a broken relationship between the company and the local community. Our case indicates at least two problems that must be handled for successful corporate citizenship. First, the traditional control-oriented management view is too narrow and not adjusted to today's citizenship reality, including how to handle corporate social responsibility. Second, we can see a possibility where the conceived needs on a global corporate level may lead to situations to obscure local needs and consequences.

Abstract [en]

This study analyses how Corporate Enterprises (CEs) approach corporate social responsibility (CSR) to meet demands frpm CE members, stakeholders and society. To address this issue, unstructured interviews were used to collect qualitative data in order to conduct case studies in four regional consumer CEs in Sweden. The study shows that CEs adopt collaborative solutions in response to members' demands, collaborate proactively in local and global partnerships to facilitate new undertakings, and put pressure on key stakeholders to take corporate responsibility for social issues. The research contributes to the CSR literature by offering an understanding of how CEs respond to new challenges using different CSR approaches and contribute to emerging CSR that promotes sustainable development for both local and global society.
