Corporate Social Responsibility Failures in the Oil Industry, Paperback / softback Book

Corporate Social Responsibility Failures in the Oil Industry Paperback / softback

Edited by Charles Woolfson, Matthais Beck


Corporate Social Responsibility: Failures in the Oil Industry directly challenges the oil industry's claims of corporate good citizenship, now widely advanced as part of a global public relations initiative.

The volume spans the industry's reach, from the troubled waters of the UK offshore Continental Shelf, with its horrendous legacy of the Piper Alpha oil rig disaster, to the inhospitable shores of Newfoundland with its own tragic legacy of lost lives; to the new frontier of oil corporate colonialism in the former Soviet Union and the icy plains of Alaska.

The central theme of violations of basic labour rights and of health and environmental protection standards will make uncomfortable reading in the boardroom.

It is equally essential reading for those who seek to improve the position of workers and industries within the oil industry's global reach.
