The best way is to develop and follow a plan. Start with your goals in mind and then work backwards to develop the plan.
Over the past 10 years, corporate social responsibility — or sustainability — has been steadily growing from a mere showoff of companies, to an admirable goal for a few companies to an almost certain must do/requirement for many businesses and corporations.
Beyond “going green,” sustainability is a holistic approach that integrates environmental, social-economic, ethical and governance considerations into corporate strategy. So, companies are encouraged to responsibly meet the above immediate demands without compromising their ability to remain profitable and enjoy strong reputation over the long term.

It's a common phenomenon worldwide where media doesn't pick up on issues related to Corporate Social Responsibility, until it's too late or at least until a disaster occurs in a corporation. Secondly, it's due to commercial self-interest viewed by media and implied by the corporations. Yet, if these facts were well presented, this would create greater direct and indirect impact towards the attainment of sustainable growth in our communities.
Progress with sustainable development requires the involvement of all sectors of society, not just business, civil society, international partners and government. The media's understanding and sustained intelligent coverage of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) agenda is a necessary precondition for real progress. Media has a pivotal role they can play in promoting social responsibility and sustainable development in any country.
