Corporate Social Responsibility at AlphaWealth

We believe that actions speak louder than words, so let us show you how we have been active in our role. 

The term Corporate Social Responsibly has become one with a variety of different meanings since its development by Howard Bowen in 1953. Below is a few definitions:

“The term social responsibilities of business men refers to the obligations of business men (and women) to pursue those policies, to make those decisions, or to follow those lines of action which are desirable in terms of the objectives and values of our society. This definition does not imply that businessmen as members of society lack the rights to criticize the values… it is assumed, however, that as servants of society, they must not disregard socially accepted values or place their own above those of society.” (Howard R. Bowen, 1953)

“With so many conflicting goals and objectives, the definition of CSR is not always clear. Here, we define CSR as actions that appear to further some social good, beyond the interests of the firm and that which is required by law. This definition underscores that, to us, CSR means going beyond obeying the law.” (Abagail & Siegel, 2001)

Here at AlphaWealth we want our view on Corporate Social Responsibility to be based on our actions not just our words. We see CSR as the continuing commitment to behave ethically and contribute to economic development as well as local communities. We believe strength in these factors leads to better governance and ultimately benefits society by creating a more sustainable focus for the firm. Building long-term impacts into business operations also benefit the wider community. Our economy and our environment are interdependent and the acknowledgement of this by more businesses will ensure a number of wider societal benefits are realised.
