Abstract
The rise and dominance of the corporate form of business organization and its impacts on society and the environment, has lead the concept and practice of Social Responsibility (SR) or Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to grow, flourish and spread. This thesis focuses on the assessment of the current CSR status of Swedish commercial vehicle component manufacturer Haldex. The company is going through business re-structuring and CSR is in the agenda, as there is understanding from the management that social and environmental initiatives can result into financial benefits.

The rise and dominance of the corporate form of business organization and its impacts on society and the environment, has lead the concept and practice of Social Responsibility (SR) or Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to grow, flourish and spread. This thesis focuses on the assessment of the current CSR status of Swedish commercial vehicle component manufacturer Haldex. The company is going through business re-structuring and CSR is in the agenda, as there is understanding from the management that social and environmental initiatives can result into financial benefits. The research was conducted on global level by investigating documented policies and standards, and site specific, through the application of a questionnaire in 12 Haldex units in 10 different countries. Prior to establishing a CSR programme, Haldex aims to identify existing CSR related elements and have a diagnosis of its current CSR status. The International Standard for Social Responsibility ISO 26000 served as the main structuring framework of the thesis and related GRI G4 aspects were used as complimentary elements adding materiality and tangibility. The assessment shows that Haldex counts with global policies that well support CSR subjects. Despite differences in the level of the implementation of CSR related elements from unit to unit, Haldex has a good base for the continued implementation of CSR on Global level. (Less)
