According to the Wikipedia
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a form of corporate self-regulation integrated into a business model. CSR policy functions as a self-regulatory mechanism whereby a business monitors and ensures its active compliance with the spirit of the law, ethical standards and national or international norms.
For Lleida.net, as well as for many 21st century companies, CSR is one of the foundations of our values, despite Friedman’s thoughts regarding business objectives.
The concept of “corporate social responsibility” is emerging as one of the keywords defining today’s business environment. And CSR takes place, among other things, by patronage. Patronage is the support, encouragement, or financial aid that an organization or individual bestow to another.
Now, with your permission, we would like to tell you about one of our sports patronage, because we believe in sports as a way to enhance our closest environment. Let us introduce you Club Hockey Lleida.net Alpicat.
Hockey is a sport of great tradition in Lleida and in the rest of Catalonia, especially roller hockey and field hockey. In recent years, hockey has more federated players than football.
