"Corporate Citizenship" is not just a remake of the traditional business ethics debate. Rather it reflects the fact that at the end of the 20th century the relationship between business and society is fundamentally changing. Modern corporations have to "invest" in their social and institutional environment ("social capital") as they learnt to invest in buildings ("physical capital") or in the professional training of their employees ("human capital"). Communitiy relations become an important asset to generate trust, foster innovations and facilitate regular contacts of business with other "stakeholder-groups". Acting as a "good corporate citizen" could solve urgent problems and increase long-term corporate profits.
