Abstract [en]

The aim of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is to increase sustainable business practices in all sectors of society. The EU-2030 agenda creates a blueprint for actors and influences national strategies of sustainability as a countermeasure of the sustainability issues at hand. We are investigating how the publicly co-financed Swedish regional network, CSR-Västsverige (CSR-V) is framing the concept CSR. Our theoretical framework consists of the triple bottom line which is divided into its social, economic and environmental dimensions, and the equivalence frames risk/opportunity. This thesis is a single case study that will conduct a qualitative content analysis on CSR-Vs education material to answer our research question; How does CSR-Västsverige frame the concept CSR in their education programs? Through our analysis, we found that CSR-V employs both risk and opportunity framing, with a main focus on opportunity framing in the economic category.
