In Slovakia the topic of socially responsible business has been little reviewed and described, both theoretically and practically. The article highlights the differences in the definition and characteristics of Corporate social responsibility (CSR) as published by several domestic and foreign authors. Not less significant is the added value of a practical design of the CSR implementation model for forest management, as well as its measurement, evaluation and reporting tools.
