Abstract

The European Commission, UK government and UK devolved administrations such as the Scottish Government are increasingly interested in the potential contribution of corporate responsibility (CR) and mission-led business (MLB). But what importance do UK owner-managers place on social and environmental goals relative to economic goals for their business, and has this changed over time? This paper addresses this topic by comparing the results of two equivalent large scale and representative surveys of UK owner-managers in 2009 and again in 2015.
