CSR in Latin America:

A General View

By Estrella Peinado-Vara

It is difficult to generalize when examining companies’ social and

environmental responsibility situations in Latin America, largely due

to the economic, social, and cultural differences in the region. Mexico,

Central America, the Caribbean, the Andean region, and Southern

Cone share many similarities but are separated by many differences. In

addition, similarities and differences also occur within the countries; this

adds to the variety of topics covered by CSR, the various approaches that

companies may have to it, and does not allow for general statements

about the complexities of the social and environmental problems facing

Latin America. This article addresses some of the peculiarities of CSR in

Latin America in terms of topics, tools, and relevant issues, including

differences between itself and other regions, particularly Europe.
