Assignment Description.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a controversial topic and is widely debated throughout the world and increasingly gaining more prominence in Australia.  The concept is broad and embraces the concept that companies have societal obligations beyond the profit goals of shareholders.  CSR requires companies to consider the other two aspects of the Triple Bottom Line (TBL): impacts to the  environment and society.  Companies are required to consider the interests of all stakeholders including investors, suppliers, consumers, employees and the community in conducting its business.
CSR in the Tourism and Hospitality Industry discusses issues and challenges faced by organizations implementing responsible business practices within the travel, hotel, leisure and hospitality industries.  Your discussion will examine the role that Tourism Australia contributes to support CSR events and activities.
The hospitality industry has a large footprint both in the area of providing employment and consumption of natural resources like energy, water, waste and food consumption.  Your report will discuss the CSR activities of your chosen company, from within the Australian Tourism, Hospitality & Travel Industry, with initiatives related to community development, equality and diversity of the workforce, progressive work practices, and many other environmental causes.
(Special updates: During this global economic collapse caused by the outbreak of the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic, how would the public and government react to the role of large multinational companies’ Corporate Social Responsibility programs? When the economy slumps, will organizations still prioritise causes other than the bottom line?)
