From the Paper:

"Supporters of corporate social responsibility uphold that the higher goal of an economic system is to further the general social welfare (University of Miami 2004). Advance economies recognize that the purpose of business lodges beyond maximizing efficiency and profit. More and more, society expects businesses to sustain it. And businesses must rely on the inputs of society for their success and survival. The bottom line is that no business can exist separately from society or the community. On account of this, businesses face the obligation contribute to the well-being of the community on which it heavily depends (University of Miami). That symbiosis is what gives flavor to the world or makes the corporate social responsibility enforcer the veritable "salt of the earth.""
