Hariri, who dedicated his life to achieving a Lebanon that was secure, prosperous and in which social justice prevailed, left the country with a legacy labeled by the international community as the "Hariri Choice," a postwar program that could be replicated in other countries suffering from violent extremism and terrorism.The Seventh Annual Forum on Corporate Social Responsibility organized by CSR-Lebanon under the patronage of Lebanon's Central Bank Governor Riad Salameh kicked off last week with a series of sessions looking at how business can embrace environmental and social sustainability.Today, there is a prevailing shared understanding that a company's profit trend runs parallel to its record on social responsibility and environmental corporate values and ethics.Social media and technology companies like Facebook and Twitter were among the first to invest in this CSR domain, taking a stance against the spread of content promoting extremism on their networks by using different measures such as deleting content published by violent extremist groups or closing accounts that promote such practices.However, companies in other businesses have yet to join the response to the challenge, indicating their commitment to their communities without touching what is considered to be a "third rail".
