From our readers - CSR should not be separated from PR

With dismay, I agree with Danny Rogers' comments on organisations deliberately keeping comms people away from CSR policy (Opinion, 28 November).

Media relations is wrongly being used as the primary PR tool. CSR is more likely to be undermined with the absence of comms staff.

Generally, the term 'social responsibility' is considered as a new field that has no clear meaning. CSR is really about moral and ethical behaviour - but this is hardly a new practice. Separate CSR and PR at your own peril.
