From the Paper:

"Clearly, as the board of an organization, in tandem with the organization's executive leadership, begins to design a corporate social responsibility program, they must first refer to the company's own ethical character. Before a company can begin a program to institute green policies, for example, or implement a community based job training program, it must be in compliance with the regulatory policies that govern its financial reporting and compliance requirements. Indeed, researchers such as Riley, (2006, p.20), believe that business ethics is simply a component of corporate social responsibility and describes business ethics as an expression of how the organization treats people: employees, competitors, or otherwise."
