This chapter presents and discusses the development of the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). A broad overview of the literature and the history of CSR is provided and it discusses how CSR is understood in the maritime industry, using perception surveys and other studies conducted in the maritime sector. The chapter recognizes that the perception of CSR is ever changing, and the divisions between public and private organisations are becoming somewhat blurred.
