Corporate social responsibility is in the focus of many companies in recent years. It becomes a way of sustainability for many companies on the market. It expresses a voluntary commitment of companies to behave responsibly to their surroundings within three pillars: economic, social and environmental one. The issue of social responsibility is developing in many European countries and European Commission is aiming at supporting national CSR strategies. CSR activities can be focused on philanthropy, the care of the employees, the environment and transparency of economic activities. This paper describes the certification process for CSR, namely SA8000 and focuses on states with the higest number of certified companies. After European Italy, it is India which is in the centre of attention and specifically with respect to child labor.
